Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa on Sunday gave a statement after being under treatment for nearly two months. She appealed to the people of the state to vote for AIADMK in the by-elections. “I require you all to vote for AIADMK in Aravakurichi, Thiruparankundram, Pondicherry and Thanjavur. Though I’m unable to come in person, my heart is there,” she said in a statement.

She also reached out to the people of the state. “I have taken rebirth because of your prayers and worship. I would like to share this happy news with you in the first place,” she said. She also thanked them by saying that she would be safe as long as she has people’s love.

Stating that she does not have any grievances in view of people’s “great love” for her, she said, “by God’s grace, very soon, by recovering fully, I am waiting to resume work.”

She also said that she needed everyone to work for the people and no one should commit suicide. Without elaborating much, she asked party workers to “understand the nature of this statement and work with a sense of duty for making MGR’s winning symbol two leaves bag a huge victory.”

“I heard many committed suicide for me. I want each one of you to work for the people. Can’t afford to lose you,” she said. To voters, she recalled the slew of welfare schemes being implemented by her regime and urged them to “give your love and support to AIADMK in the present polls as well, remembering such innumerable schemes to enhance the people’s standard of living.”

The 68-year-old AIADMK supremo was admitted to the hospital on September 22 after she complained of fever and dehydration. Later, the hospital had said she was being treated for infection with respiratory support, among other things.

      Though Jayalitha has provided a good governance, she needs to disociate herself from active politics for health reasons.Time that younger and fit persons take her role.

                        The death of Jayalalithaa will be announced after the Tamilnadu bypolls. The four consuencies are high stakes consuencies where a lot of black money was spent and doled out which led to the election commission cancelling the earlier election. Now, the AIADMK cannot afford to lose, which will happen if the people know that Jayalalithaa is dead--the Jalalalithaa magic charm will be lost and the candidates become mere goondas, So the deceit will continue to be perpetuated for 1 more week until after November 19th.

                            Being a film actress, she has no clue how to bring about real social, educational and economic reforms and economic opportunities for the poor.

                                  Maybe she woke up when she heard about demonetization, but that should not be a problem, with her Rajya Sabha seats which Modi needs desperately to keep his Sarkar going no demonetization will work with her, dead sure she was alerted to deposit all her cash much in advance by BJP
