New Delhi, Feb 24: On the occasion of late chief minister J Jayalalithaa’s 70th birth anniversary on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be in Chennai to launch AIADMK’S ambitious scheme of providing 50 per cent subsidy for working women to buy two-wheelers.

As per the official statement, besides Tamil Nadu, PM will also visit Daman, Puducherry and Gujarat in the next two days.

PM will also visit Puducherry on Sunday where he will offer floral tributes to Shri Aurobindo at Aurobindo Ashram.

Jayalalithaa, also referred as Amma by her supporters, a very popular star of Tamil cinema during the 1960s and 1970s — passed away on December 5, 2016, after suffering from prolonged illness. Her death shattered the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) into factions, and after much unrest, Palaniswami assumed the office of the Chief Minister on February 16, 2017.
