It is a matter of relief that the Union Government has clarified that cheque facility won't be withdrawn.

There were stray reports that an overenthusiastic government favaouring total digitalisation may go in for banning the cheque books.

It is gratifying to note that the government won't proceed with the reforms this way.

Not in talks with BJP,says Jayalalitha
Chennai:AIADMK leader

Jayalalithaa today termed baseless the reports that her party was being approached through

back channels by the BJP for a post-poll alliance.

"I wish to clarify that such reports are

baseless and the AIADMK is not conducting talks with any political party for a post-poll alliance,"

she said in a statement.

BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate L K Advani [Images] had

yesterday said back channels were working to bring Jayalalitha into the NDA fold.

In an

interview to CNN-IBN, Advani had said "Yes with Jayalalitha..." when asked whether back

channels with BSP chief Mayawati [Images] or the AIADMK supremo were open.


clarifying his remarks, Advani told reporters in Thiruvananthapuram today that it was up to the

AIADMK to decide on a post-poll alliance. "It is for them to decide. I simply mentioned about it,"

he said.

Jayalalithaa also asserted that AIADMK had aligned with the MDMK, PMK and the

two Left parties only. "The AIADMK has entered into an alliance with the CPI, CPI (M), PMK and

the MDMK for the coming General Elections," she added.
