Jayalalithaa's nephew lashes out at Dinakaran, favours Panneerselvam

Finance Minister D Jayakumar said gold rings were being presented to new born kids and gifts to their mothers in view of the birth anniversary of late Jayalalithaa.

"I am beginning a new political journey", Deepa said, adding that she took the decision after a thorough analysis.

Deepa calls it a political movement.

Fed officials discussed possible rate hike 'fairly soon'
The minutes were released with the customary three week delay. But she did not signal when the next hike might occur. Most economists have been forecasting a rise in June.

Stalin, who is also the Leader of Opposition in the Tamil Nadu Assembly, had objected to government schemes being named after Jayalalithaa and "taxpayers' money being used in her 69th birthday celebrations".

Listing out the various pro-people initiatives launched by the late chief minister, he said Jayalalithaa was a popular leader who always remained in the hearts of the people.

Stalin also said Jayalalithaa's portraits were found in the secretariat, state government and local body offices and demanded that they be removed.

Fed Minutes: Modest Rate Hike May Be Just Around The Corner
Committee members said they expect to continue reinvesting until normalization of short-term interest rates is well under way. But some also perceived risks of slower growth from some of Trump's proposals, presumably restrictions on trade.

Ms Deepa Jayakumar, niece of the late CM, announced the launch of MGR-Amma-Deepa Peravai and declared that she would contest the ensuing by-elections to the R K Nagar constituency, which was represented by her late aunt and vowed to "retrieve Two Leaves" symbol of the AIADMK.

Deepak came to the limelight during Jayalalithaa's funeral when he performed her final rites along with Sasikala. Her political rise was rapid; within a few years she became AIADMK propaganda secretary and was elected to the Rajya Sabha, the upper house of India's Parliament.

Later, Health Minister C Vijayabaskar told reporters that across Tamil Nadu, 690 medical camps were being held. "There is a traitor group working behind the govt and we will work continuously to throw away this group". "I had already said that the meeting (with Panneerselvam) was only a courtesy call". "We want to support this young girl because she is educated and seems knowledgeable", he said.

Defense Secretary: Media is not the 'enemy of the American people'
That was a tweet President Trump sent out Friday as he continues to ramp up his war against the media. Trump's approach drives at the heart of an ongoing debate over "fake news": media distrust.

On how confident she was in taking the Forum to its logical conclusion, Deepa said, "the true followers of Amma are behind me and there are no second thoughts about that".
