One of the most prestigious schemes was the Amma’s Kitchen where any poor person could have a stomach full meal for a meager amount twice a day was worth appreciation. The Amma’s Kit proved to be beneficial for pregnant ladies. Without mentioning Jayalalithaa, one would not be able to speak about women in politics in India.

Congress Leader Patang Rao Kadam then proposed to the Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister that officials of the rank of Chief Secretary should be sent to Tamil Nadu to study the pro-public schemes launched by the Tamil Nadu Government under the leadership of Jayalalithaa.

NCP Leader Ajit Pawar then Late Jayalalithaa had launched many schemes for the masses in Tamil Nadu and ran it successfully too. Unlike other political leaders who aspire to come to the central government or national leadership, Jayalalithaa chose to stay within her state and created a greater impact.
