Do not waste your votes as this election is not just for a change of government but an election that would change the fate of the country itself, said Chief Minister and AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa, addressing a mammoth crowd in Gajalnaickenpatti on Thursday. “This is no ordinary election... this time the fate of the country will be determined, not a mere change of government,” she said.

“There are several contenders; only if votes are pooled on the right person there will be a change; if not, the votes could go to waste. Your vote is a precious possession which can bring change, use it responsibly,” Jayalalithaa said.

Claiming that AIADMK could be the harbinger of change, she said a government at the centre with the participation of the AIADMK was needed if Tamil Nadu’s rights were to be upheld.

She said, under the 10-year Congress-led UPA rule, the country’s borders have become insecure, the Rupee has been devalued, agriculture has declined, food security has been threatened, prices of essential commodities have risen and the economy was sagging.

Leg Up for Kolli Hills

The Chief Minister said Kolli Hills has been turned into an eco-friendly tourism destination with the efforts of the AIADMK government in the State.

“With a view to turn Kolli hills into an eco-friendly tourism destination, I allotted Rs 1.37 crore,” she said, while canvassing for her party candidate P R Sundaram here on Thursday.

Enlisting the schemes introduced to benefit the district, the AIADMK supremo noted that Rs10 crore and Rs 5.88 crore had been sanctioned to construct a by-pass road in Namakkal and Thiruchengode respectively. In addition, Rs 5.70 crore had been allotted for building four bridges, of which two has been completed.
