Jayalalithaa’s birth anniversary: EPS-OPS’ request to cadres

Chennai: The ruling AIADMK in Tamilnadu today appealed to its cadres to celebrate the 72nd birth anniversary of former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa by distributing welfare measures.

Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami and Deputy CM O Panneerselvam, the joint coordinator and coordinator of the party, respectively, will lead the celebrations on 24 February by garlanding a statue of the late leader at the AIADMK headquarters here, a party release said.

Jayalalithaa had always urged her supporters to avoid grandeur during her birthday celebrations and therefore party workers should mark the day by distributing welfare measures to the poor and take up various pro-people activties, the release said.

As part of this, they should organise blood donation camps, take up eye donation activities, conduct medical camps and hold various events for students and distribute aid to them and conduct free marriages and feed those at old age homes among others, the release added.
