After more than a week in jail, VK Sasikala today said she was missing J Jayalalithaa - whose 69th birthday is tomorrow. The AIADMK chief, who is in jail on an disproportionate assets case, had been a longtime live-in aide of the former Chief Minister. The two had even been in the same jail together earlier in the same case. Recalling the "love, compassion and hard work" of Ms Jayalalithaa, who died in December after a long illness, Ms Sasikala said, "That Amma is not with us makes me more sad".
