  2. I am not interested in state politics.
  3. As an economist, the only advice I can give the Modi government is to take some steps that will raise the morale of the consumer and investor. That means income tax abolition and reducing the annual interest rate to nine per cent.
  4. Jayalalithaa was disqualified from contesting elections because of the Tansi case. I was the complainant. The public prosecutor conducted the case, but I provided all the documents and evidence. She was convicted. She could not contest elections, as her nomination papers were rejected.

  14. My job was to bring down the government, and I did that.
  15. Twenty years ago, when I spoke about women getting harassed by politicians, people said I was getting personal. Today, the climate has changed. It has become an epidemic. It’s happening in every place.
  16. Jayalalitha cannot be misled about anything. She is one of the most well informed persons today in Indian politics.
