CHENNAI: AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa on Saturday declared that she would overcome all the troubles of her present predicament, and used the statement to yet again appeal to her supporters not to indulge in acts that could endanger or cost them their lives. Noting that a further 26 deaths had been attributed to shock over her present predicament, Jayalalithaa said the toll so far had risen to 219.

“I will emerge victorious, overcoming all challenges. I have full belief in this. The foundation of this is my faith that the benevolence of Almighty will always stand by me,” read Jayalalithaa’s simple declaration, in an open letter to her supporters. “So, I appeal to my beloved Tamil people not to act in a manner that puts their lives at risk on this account,” she said.
