Portraits of Mahatma Gandhi, social reformer Periyar E V Ramasamy, B R Ambedkar, freedom fighter Muthuramalinga Thevar and IUML leader Quaid-e-Milleth Mohammed Ismail adorn the House on one side.
However, noting that the bench has to hear a plea moved by Congress leader P Chidambaram's son Karti Chidambaram challenging the lookout notice issued by the CBI, as per the direction of the Supreme Court, the bench said that it would take up the DMK's plea on Tuesday. "All her dreams would be fulfilled by us", he assured.
When the first bench of Chief Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice Abdul Quddhose commenced proceedings on Monday at about 10:30 am, DMK's counsel P Wilson made an urgent mention and requested the court to take up the plea. DMK boycotted the ceremony and within an hour moved to the Madras high court seeking to remove it. People from DMK had strict opposition as Jayalalithaa was "found guilty of corruption charges by the Supreme Court".
According to the petitioner, Jayalalithaa was convicted by a special court on graft charges.
The appeals against Jayalalithaa were treated abated on the ground of her demise.
That's why opposition parties led by the DMK have announced that they would boycott the function on Monday.
As is the norm for portraits of leaders in the assembly, Jayalalithaa's portrait bore the slogan "Peace, Prosperity and Growth".
On the other side, portraits of former chief ministers Rajaji, K Kamaraj, C N Annadurai, M G Ramachandran and saint- poet Thiruvalluvar are featured. Congress state leadership said they will look into the contrarian view of Vijayadharani.
The ruling AIADMK suffered a major setback after its sidelined leader TTV Dhinakaran won the RK Nagar by-polls in December a year ago.
