Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe's condolence message as follows:

The passing away of Jayalalitha Jeyaram, a stateswoman who won the hearts and minds of not only the people of South India but all of India is a sad occasion indeed.

The people of South India elected her as their Chief Minister six times; she was not in the best of health when she won her last election yet it was a firm display of the trust people had placed in her as their leader. Although she had political differences with Sri Lanka, to her credit as a stateswoman, she maintained that the issues faced by Indian and Sri Lankan fishermen must be solved in a humane manner.

During her life time, she did much to establish and maintain a strong sense of fellowship between India and Sri Lanka.
Fondly known as Amma by her people, Jayalalitha Jeyaram will be remembered for the selfless service she rendered unto her people.
