“Health queries regarding Amma were raised in recent past. It is the duty of the state government to inquire. Had recommended an inquiry commission,” O Panneerselvam said.

“I will prove my strength in the Assembly. Whoever extends support to Tamil people, we will accept it,” the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister said.
