Describing the Lok Sabha election as an election between dharma and adharma and  between ‘truth’ and ‘falsehood’, Chief Minister and AIADMK general secretary J Jayalalithaa on Monday  appealed to the electorate of Tamil Nadu to reject the Congress, BJP and DMK and elect the AIADMK candidates.

“Casting your votes for the Congress will be tantamount to opening the gates of death while voting for the DMK is giving licence to that party to swindle the wealth of the country. The BJP has no concern for the welfare of the people of Tamil Nadu,” the AIADMK chief said while concluding her one-and-a-half-month campaign for the Lok Sabha elections. She also introduced all the 40 candidates for LS seats and the candidate for the by-election to Alandur Assembly constituency.

“I have love and affection towards you (the people of Tamil Nadu) just as a mother has towards her children.  I have dedicated myself for your sake long ago. The AIADMK is the only party which will establish the rights of Tamil Nadu at any cost.  It is the party that protects the welfare of the minority communities. I appeal to you to strengthen me to serve you”, Jayalalithaa said.

Stating that for the past one and half months, she had been undertaking a whirlwind campaign across the State, Jayalalithaa said, “In my speeches, there is no duplicity; no attempt to hoodwink people; no remarks that would instigate communal hatred; no derisive remarks against leaders of other parties; no attempt to beg votes citing the age”.

“On the contrary, my speeches were laced with plans for realising a prosperous future for the Tamils and about  good governance. My speeches reflected only truth and reality. I just poured out my heart to the people,” Jayalalithaa said.

During the past 10 years, nothing good was delivered to the people of India through the UPA government at the Centre. The deficit level and inflation had gone up and as a result, the value of rupee had depreciated while the prices of essential commodities were going up.

The UPA regime was marked by unprecedented number of scams - 2G spectrum scam, coal scam, helicopter scam, Commonwealth games scam etc., and due to these, the country’s economy was destabilised.

“While the Lankan Tamils continue to suffer, the fishermen of Tamil Nadu are being attack-ed by Lankan Navy. This is the Central government’s 10-year achievement,” she said and added that but the Congress had been unleashing a false propaganda that the country had witnessed extraordinary growth during the past 10 years and seeking votes. The DMK had not fulfilled its electoral promises made during the elections in 2004 and 2009, she said.

Meanwhile, actor Ajay Ratnam and his wife Sathyasree joined the AIADMK. They received membership cards from Jayalalithaa at her residence.
