Slamming the DMK for its “unprecedented scams”, AIADMK supremo and Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Tuesday exuded confidence that people who unseated the Karunanidhi government would give more resounding success to her party in the future.

In her message to the party workers on AIADMK’s Founding Day, Ms. Jayalalithaa, in an indirect reference to the 2G scam without naming the DMK, said people had rejected those who had “looted the nation of several lakhs of crores, brought disrepute to Tamil Nadu at the national level by indulging in unprecedented scams and hindering the progress of the state.”

“Evil forces are trying to raise again thinking that people would have forgotten their miseries. We know that people would not allow it to happen”, Ms. Jayalalithaa, who led the party to a landslide victory in last year’s Assembly elections, said.

Maintaining that she was voted to power for the third time keeping in mind good work done by her in her previous tenures, Ms. Jayalalithaa, who had set her eyes on AIADMK playing a key role at national level after the Lok Sabha polls, said, .

“I realise with gratitude that the people are waiting to give more victory prizes to the AIADMK.”

Tracing her political journey, Ms. Jayalalithaa said it was not an easy task for a woman to lead a political life in the state but she had dedicated her life to protecting AIADMK founded by late M G Ramachandran, known as MGR, on this day in 1972.

Noting that she had been implementing various welfare measures in order to put the state on top and several states were following it, the Chief Minister said she had no “personal motives” and she followed the principle “I am for you and I am because of you“.

Highlighting various welfare schemes such as mid-day meal, pension to elders, education for all and free laptop to students implemented during AIADMK regime, Ms. Jayalalithaa assured continuation of such “progressive schemes”.

Another angle:

Jaya can't get Power plants when we wish. It takes 2-3 years to have
one. DMK didn't took it serious. Now, it is effecting Jaya's tenure.

Just my view.!

Just scan her tenure which doesnt even finish 2 yrs people are verymuch frustrated by power cut 99% of the tamil nadu state affected by this, they are not ready to hear the old tune because of DMK regime policies. The Second one is law and order when compare to her previous tenure now its totally flopped lot of murders, burglaries, chain snatching ..........etc are happening day by day in the increasing order. Third unwanted police action againt the previous regime ministers where they came out of the case within the two or three months by the help of high court. Last one is as a CM she doest open a mouth to the regarding the power cut and whats the govt plan to solve this problem. With these type of series issues public facing day by day how she boldy talk about her future victories? She is try to make all people in tamil nadu are fools?

Madame, People wanted a change and AIADMK won. And now again, the same people will not mind a change once again mainly because:
* More than 12 hours powercut which affects the normal life of everyone;
* Chain snatching, robbery, rape cases have increased;
* People don't need anything free of cost - they are not beggars. They need self respect, the purchasing power for which regular job opportunities needed for everyone.Best wishes for a bright future!

Law and order scenario is far from satisfactory. chain snatching, burglaries, murders are on the rise. The administration must be made more people friendly. Corruption needs to be weeded out. These need to be taken care of.

First, Let her provide electricity to people. Then, dream about victories. What a shame that many cities experience 16 hour power cut. She needs to empathize with the people irst and stabilize the energy crisis first.
