The News Minute| October 10, 2014| 2.20 pm IST She has been in jail for almost two weeks and her supporters in Tamil Nadu have resorted to prayers, violence and all sorts of gimmicks in support of Jayalalithaa, also known as Amma to them. Transport bus services were affected, sporadic attacks on vehicles and even clashes with DMK were part of the protests. But now supporters have calmed down and sacrificing hair for Amma seems to be the new trend. Thousand and six AIADMK members tonsured their heads in Salem. Yep, that's the new mode of protest. The tonsuring protest in Salem comes days after 502 party cadres tonsured their head at the Swamimalai Sri Swaminatha Swami temple near Kumbakonam last Friday to appease the Gods in favour of J Jayalalithaa.
