Government of Tamil Nadu,
I was shocked to hear the unfortunate demise of Smt. Jayalalithaa Jayaraman, former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. I’d like to hereby express my deepest condolences to the Government and people of Tamil Nadu.
Smt. Jayalalithaa is a prominent political leader in India I pay sincere respect to. Her irreplaceable contributions to the development of Tamil Nadu will be long remembered by history and people.
I’m firmly believing that people of Tamil Nadu who just lost a great leader will soon summon up under the new leadership of Tamil Nadu.
Tamil Nadu and China share a tradition of friendly relations, harmonious atmosphere between two peoples and frequent commercial exchanges. I sincerely hope that Tamil Nadu and Chennai would further enhance its friendly cooperation with China.
