Jaya turns 67; PM, TN gov greet her

A 67 kg cake, special poojas and a slew of welfare activities marked the 67th birthday of AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa, who was greeted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“Birthday greetings to Jayalalithaa ji. May she be blessed with a long life, filled with good health,” Modi tweeted.

Tamil Nadu Governor K Rosaiah also greeted the former chief minister wishing her a long life and good health. Rosaiah sent a flower bouquet and in his message hailed her ‘leadership skills’ and ‘commitment for people’, an AIADMK release here said.

“He wished her all success in her service to the people and wished good health and happiness,” it added. Jayalalithaa, who is out on bail after being sentenced to four year in jail in a graft case by a Bengaluru special court, had a quite day. The party headquarters at Royapettah here wore a festive look with Cabinet Ministers including Chief Minister O Panneerselvam and other supporters thronging it.

A 67 kg cake, denoting the age of the ‘Puratchi Thalaivi’, revolutionary leader as she is addressed by partymen, was cut at the party headquarters by Social Welfare Minister P Valarmathi and sweets were distributed.
