The AIADMK Government gave several full-page advertisements in today's edition of almost all dailies highlighting the achievements of its one-year rule.

Asked about the Jayalalithaa government's achievements in the last one year, he said, "I do not see any difference..".

He said the state was facing acute power shortage and the growth in agriculture was "poor". Noting that Jayalalithaa backed the protesters against the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Plant, he said, the commissioning of the plant got delayed by one year because of this.
