Jaya cannot hope for favourable verdict - Captain

AIADMK leader Jayalalithaa cannot hope for a favourable verdict in the appeal filed against her conviction in the disproportionate assets case in the Karnataka High Court, said Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam founder Vijayakant. He was addressing an International Women’s Day rally organised by the Women’s Wing of the DMDK in Salem.

He also dismissed the argument that the DMDK was losing its popularity among the voters. On the contrary, the party was gaining in strength and fast becoming a powerful political force in the State.
On the Mekedatu issue, Mr. Vijayakant said that when the matter surfaced during MGR’s regime, the former Chief Minister approached the then Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, who managed to pacify the then Karnataka Chief Minister, Gundu Rao, to shelve the project.

The farmers of Tamil Nadu who have been staging agitations in front of Parliament in New Delhi, should agitate in front of Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s house, demanding that she direct the Congress Chief Minister of Karnataka not to go ahead with this project.

Now a planet named ‘Vishy’

Here’s a question for the nerds... what do Roger Federer, Jesse Owens, Arsene Wenger, Donald Bradman and India’s Viswanathan Anand have in common? Well, apart from all of them being connected to some sport, they all have  minor planets named after them. The former World Chess Champion joined this unique club when a minor planet (4538), located roughly between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, was named after him.

The newly-named minor planet, (4538 Vishyanand), was discovered by Kenzo Suzuki of Toyota, Japan, on October 10, 1988. A staff members of Minor Planet Center, Michael Rudenko, was invited to name the object as it remained unnamed for more than 10 years.  Rudenko told that, the idea of naming a minor planet for Anand was entirely his own. He added that, he chosen Vishwanathan Anand’s name because in addition to being a great chess player he is also a gentlemen and astronomy enthusiast.
