People want Chief Minister Jayalalithaa to be the next prime minister, Finance Minister O Panneerselvam said while addressing a meeting organised by the Vellore east district party cadre on Tuesday night.
He said the CM had made the party stronger with 1.5 crore membership through her hard work in the past 31 years. Her governance, welfare schemes and approach towards people had made her the obvious choice for the country’s top post, he added. Due to all these credentials, people had narrowed down on Chief minister Jayalalithaa as their obvious choice as prime minister, Panneerselvam added.
The elite circle in Delhi have already started talking that only J Jayalalithaa could lead the country, which had been facing difficult situations because of the wrong policies.
“Therefore it is important that we work together to win all the 40 seats for the parliament and make her the next PM,” he told them.
Earlier Electricity Minister Natham Viswanathan, criticising the opposition, predicted a landslide victory for AIADMK saying that DMK and its allies would vanish from the scene in the forthcoming parliament elections. Ministers K P Munusamy, R Vaidyalingam, K C Veeramani, Mohamed John, district secretaries S R K Appu, MLAs, S Ravi (Arakkonam), V K R Srinivasan (Arcot) and Vellore Mayor Karthiyayini were among those who spoke.
