Jayalalitha, Amma, Was The Mother Of Welfare Schemes

Jayalalitha, fondly called Amma, the chief minister of Tamil Nadu had more than 18 welfare schemes that are free or heavily subsidized. Some of these include – the cradle baby scheme (to prevent female foeticide in the early 1990s), gold for marriage scheme, Amma canteens where food is available for Re. 1/-, Amma bottled water, Amma drinking water, Amma laptops, Amma baby care, Amma grinder, mixie and fan, Amma mobile, Amma pharmacy, Amma micro-loans, and several more – many of which were popular. It is with deep regret that we announce her sad and untimely demise.
