Aiming to connect on a deeper level with her makkal (subjects), Amma is expected to launch another chain of Amma Unavagam - the low-cost eateries, which are already popular in the state, through video-conferencing.  She will also be inaugurating a police headquarters and brand new vehicles for various departments of the state government.

Meanwhile, Jaya has thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, union Finance minister Arun Jaitley and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu for their wishes on her assuming office again.

The release further stated that Naidu had also called Jayalalithaa over phone to congratulate her and she thanked him for his gesture.
