Tamil Nadu MP prays for welfare of Amma in NY

New York, 16 November, (

Tamils living in the tristate area offered special prayers to Lord Saneeswarar for the welfare of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and AIADMK Party supermom J Jayalalithaa - also referred as Amma - who has been hospitalized in the state capital of Chennai for over two months. AIADMK Member of Parliament from Coimbatore A.P. Nagarajan, who had come to the UN as part of the Indian delegation, joined the prayers held at Lord Saneeswarar temple in Queens.

Special prayers and havan were conducted by the Tamils and Nagarajan sat through the entire puja done by the temple priest. The event was arranged by American Friends of AIADMK headed by Koshy O Thomas. Vice President of America Tamil Sangam Jaya Sundaram, joint secretary Sriram Elango, committee member Vishnu Raja and others attended the prayers.

Nagarajan said that Amma has a special place for American Tamils in her heart and it was New Jersey State Assembly that honored her with a joint resolution signed by the then Speaker of the House, a distinct honor not done to any Indian politician. He said Amma is on the road to recovery and would resume her office soon.

Thomas said Tamils are sincerely praying for the fast recovery of Amma and Nagarajan would be carrying the temple Prasad and honors to the Chief Minister.
