We have acute shortage of energy and nuclear energy is a clean energy. Jaya is such a fool that instead of taking credit for making the state self sufficient in power, trying to drive out the initiative of D MK. Same as she asked her police to be mute spectators while hooligans were attacking U S embassy just to bring bad name to centre without realising that the Tamils will hate her if ever the embassy is shifted to Bangalore.

Jayalalitha is an utter failure in her administration.

She has totally neglected the state to utter distress.

She is failed to provide electricity through wind power and solar power nothing is she doing in this regard.

She should be shunt out of her chief minister post.

Hope the Bangalore case that is going on against her puts her behind jail.
