A teen spectator was gored to death while watching Jallikattu in Madurai on Monday.
Rajinkanth’s political entry on the last day of 2017 capped a year of churning and confusion post-Jayalalithaa as the state lurched from one spectacle to another.
Chief minister of Tamil Nadu, Palaniswami and his deputy Panneerselvam, placed a wreath at the memorial, where Jayalalithaa was laid to rest in December 2016.
Efforts were being undertaken on a "war footing" while power supply was being restored. The Coast Guard's help was being used to rescue 30 fishermen stranded in the sea even as 76 of them had been already rescued, Palaniswami said.
The development is a setback to the deposed party leader VK Sasikala, who is currently serving her term in a Bengaluru jail in a disproportionate assets case, besides her nephew and sidelined deputy general secretary TTV Dhinakaran.

Dhinakaran, who was seen as a master strategist, had misread the situation badly.
The council appointed a 11-member panel headed by deputy chief minister O Panneerselvam with chief minister Edapaddi Palanisami as co-coordinator to run the party.
Days after his 19 loyalist MLAs petitioned governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao to oust Palaniswami, he said, "We will select a good person, somebody who does not harbour thoughts of betrayal."
The meeting also dwelled upon "retrieving" AIADMK mouthpiece 'Namathu Dr MGR' and news channel 'Jaya TV'
The aim of the Dhinakaran group is to topple the government before the general council is convened (to unseat Sasikala as general secretary) and the two factions petition the Election Commission to retrieve the Two Leaves symbol.
"Centre assures all possible support to CM Thiru Edappadi K. Palaniswami & Dy CM Thiru O Panneerselvam for the growth of TN"
Removal of Sasikala and making it public was the last minute precondition imposed by the OPS camp which delayed the merger by a couple of hours but that too was accepted by the EPS camp and announced soon after the merger ceremony.
Following the merger, O.Panneerselvam, a three-time CM of Tamil Nadu will hold the position of Deputy CM while Edappadi Palaniswami will continue to remain the Chief Minister of the state.
Panneerselvam, who is scheduled to leave for Madurai on Sunday to attend a meeting there, was expected to elicit the opinion of the faction leaders here to arrive at any firm view on the merger issue.
