Jayalalithaa invokes MGR, says AIADMK will pull off massive win in Assembly elections

CHENNAI(PTI): Invoking iconic party founder M G Ramachandran, AIADMK General Secretary and Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Wednesday said her party would secure a massive win in the upcoming Assembly elections and exhorted cadres to work towards such a victory with full involvement.

Declaring open new party district offices at a function here, she told partymen, “This function is a precursor to the massive victory that will be secured by the AIADMK in the Assembly polls to be held in a few months.” She inaugurated the new offices at Villupuram South, Namakkal, Karur, Pudukottai, Theni and Dindigul from the party headquarters through video conferencing.

“I urge you all to work towards such a victory with full involvement, hail Anna (top leader of Dravidian movement and former Chief Minister), hail MGR,” she said. Hitting out at arch-rival DMK without naming it, she said, “I regard the AIADMK more than my life and guard it (the party) which was founded by MGR after he was dismayed seeing the political arm (DMK) of the Dravidian movement founded by Anna getting usurped by an evil force.”

“AIADMK, founded by Puratchi Thalaivar (Revolutionary leder) MGR, will be a movement that will serve the people for many more hundreds of years,” she said.
