Chennai, Tamil Nadu News Highlights: Tamil Nadu has not opposed the National Education Policy (NEP) but has submitted recommendations for consideration, Union Minister of State for Education Subhas Sarkar claimed on Saturday.

It has been more than 25 days since the Tamil Nadu and the central governments said a second airport for Chennai would come up at Parandur, about 59km from the airport at Meenambakkam. Residents of Parandur, in Kancheepuram district, have since been apprehensive and felt helpless as they have no clue about how the project is going to be implemented.

The Justice Arumughaswamy Commission constituted to probe the circumstances surrounding late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa’s death, submitted its report to the state government on Saturday. Justice Arumughaswamy, who later spoke to reporters, said the 500-odd pages report in English and around 600 pages in Tamil was prepared after hearing about 150 witnesses. “Only the government can decide on publishing the report,” he said, adding, all concerned aspects have been mentioned in the report and said it was a “satisfying” outing for him.
