AIADMK general secretary and Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa has urged her cadre to establish direct contact with voters across the State, as they canvass votes for the party.

Jayalalithaa asked them to take up direct contact activities like door-to-door campaigning and street corner meetings,and told each one to go into the field to ensure the party’s victory in all the 40 constituencies in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry.

She asked them to put in full efforts in their respective constituencies as if she herself was contesting in that constituency.

Jayalalithaa’s exhortation came in the form of an open letter to her cadre on Sunday. She noted in the letter that this is the first time in the AIADMK’s history that it was contesting in all 40 constituencies by itself.

“In this way, it is a historic election for us. I urge each member of the party to carry out their duties to ensure that our brethren occupy all 40 seats in the Lok Sabha, in the same way that our party members serve the people in local bodies and co-operatives,” read Jayalalithaa’s letter.

Lashing out at the Congress for being anti-Tamil, Jayalalithaa asked her party men to take this message directly to the people.  “The Congress has for the past 10 years led the Union government, which has snatched the rights of the Tamil people and degraded Tamil culture. The DMK stuck on to such a government for nine years. The Congress-led government has completely ruined the economy, the value of the rupee has fallen substantially and graft rules the roost in all departments. This has led to sharp price rise across the country. This Lok Sabha election comes as an opportunity to protect our country. This is the message I urge party workers to take directly to the voters,” said Jayalalithaa.

She asked them to internalise her view of public life and service of the people as “a prayer, a penance that has no space or hatred and the dedication of oneself to bringing peace and joy to the lives of crores of people” when they take up party activities.
