CHENNAI: AIADMK general secretary J Jayalalithaa recently exhorted her party cadres to ensure the party’s massive mandate in the ensuing local bodies polls and the elections to three Assembly constituencies—Thanjavur, Aravakurichi and Tirupparankundram. In her letter to party cadres on the occasion of the birthday of late leader ‘Arignar’ C N Annadurai, Jayalalithaa said the victory in local body polls and in the three Assembly constituencies, would complement AIADMK’s Assembly election victory.

“Let us vow to re-establish that there will be no room for dynastic rule or undemocratic activities in TN. Let us eliminate the trace of evil through these elections,” she added.

Meanwhile, 91,308 cadres and many functionaries, including 10,000 women, from various parties joined the ruling AIADMK. Charubala Thondaiman, former Mayor of Tiruchy Corporation and TMC’s Tiruchy urban district secretary, actor Pasi Sathya, comedian Ganja Karuppu, former MLAs, Thottiyam M Rajasekaran (TMC) and KV Nannan (DMK) from Chengam, DMDK’s Chennai west district secretary AM Kamaraj, KKSSR Ramesh, son of former Minister and present DMK MLA KKSSR Ramachandran and K Veeramuthu, propaganda secretary, VCK joined the party.
