Cabinet reshuffle on cards!!

Well it’s once again time to see some new faces in Amma’s cabinet…this time Chief Minister J Jayalilathaa has decided to drop at least 6 of her ministers due to lack of performance and on various charges. This will be done based on the Intelligence inputs submitted by the State Police…Immediately after assuming charge as Chief Minister Jayalilathaa had asked intelligence officials to form a team to track the activities of each minister. Last time Esakki  Subbaiah was axed based on complaints and a state intelligence report about his links with some DMK functionaries and charges that he had helped them bag some contracts. Besides, there were also allegations about his involvement in land grabbing. Also some of AIADMK district secretaries have also come under scanner due to the infighting within the party during the local body elections…that resulted in rebel candidates filing individual nominations…sources say several complaints have also been received on that front as well.

“Babus” to be shunted out!!

After cracking the whip on party men…Sources say Jaya’s focus will be on the government machinery…even though the AIADMK has witnessed a thumping victory in the just concluded local body elections…it was the anger against the DMK that had played a major role in these elections too…From power cuts to law and order situation in the State still remains a matter of concern for the people…and some of the populist schemes that were launched by Chief Minister J Jayalilathaa are yet to see the light of the day...Whispers doing rounds in Fort St George is that Chief Minister Jayalilathaa will be reviewing the performances of Babus too and is all set to crack the whip.  Sources say Amma is contemplating large scale transfers in the IAS and IPS cadre in the state.

Its movie time folks.....

Well, it’s that time of the year…when local Assistant Commissioners, Inspectors, Sub- Inspectors and Constables are bracing themselves for a ticket collection spree…its Diwali…and time for some new releases. This time there is a huge demand for tickets as movies like SRK’s Ra.One, Surya’s Ezham Arivu and Vijay’s Velayadum is all set to hit the silver screens. IAS and IPS officials have been directly contacting theater owners for tickets…and perhaps it has become as an unwritten rule for the Assistant Commissioners and Inspectors to arrange tickets for their senior officers. Now local police officers are visibly seen entering theaters in their jurisdiction for advance bookings…in one of the multiplex in the city a police inspector has demanded at least 10 tickets for each show (Compulsory) for him so that it can be given to senior officials or their family members. As usual theaters owners are completely annoyed by such demands and are avoiding phone calls from unknown numbers, fearing that it could be an IAS or an IPS officer.

Jaya’s complaint rattles Assembly speaker

Chief Minister J Jayalilathaa who preferred Fort St George as her office…has complained about the maintenance of the building…in a note that was sent to the Assembly speaker D Jayakumar…Chief Minister has complained that the corridors of power bears an ugly look…with electricity wires hanging overhead posing danger. This complaint by the Chief Minister seems to have rattled the Assembly speaker who is seen inspecting the corridors of Fort St George…and right now the Speakers focus is on getting things done for Amma.

Udhayanidhi Stalin makes a windfall

Red Giant pictures’ 7am Arivu has made a whopping profit of 15 crores even before it has hit the screen says industry sources.   With AR.Murugadoss being the director his bankable credibility has boosted the movies sales.  With Vijay’s ‘Velayutham’ hitting the silver screens the political tug of war has entered the silver screen too say sources. Vijay appearing to be Amma’s supporter sand Udhayanidhi Stalin being the producer of ‘7am Arivu’ political war has entered the silver screen too.
