CHENNAI: The Assembly Budget session ended on Wednesday on an emotive note with Speaker K. Kalimuthu predicting a greater role for Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in national politics, even as Prime Minister.

In his concluding remarks before adjourning the House sine die, he commended the Chief Minister for her selfless and dedicated service to society, like a candle spreading light.

In a voice choked with emotion, Mr. Kalimuthu said, "I have an intuition and a strong belief. In the world of politics, foes will become friends and discord will give way to accord, leading to a new understanding. The wheel of history will turn. If not today, it will be tomorrow or the day after that the Chief Minister is going to assume office as Prime Minister for the benefit of not only the State but also the entire country."

Mr. Kalimuthu said thrice that his predictions would certainly come true.

The Speaker appreciated Ms. Jayalalithaa for attending the session all days, keenly listening to the debate and confidently responding to the points raised by Opposition members. He showered encomiums on her for her knowledge of different subjects and fluency in English, apart from Tamil and three other Dravidian languages, thanks to her hard work and sustained efforts.

Mr. Kalimuthu thanked the Chief Minister for moving a resolution to declare Tirukkural national literature.

Referring to her suo motu statements, offering concessions to various sections of society, he said the 110th couplet asserted that there was scope for atonement for any sin but ingratitude (Ennanri kondrarkkum uyvundam uyvillai seinanri kondra magarku).
