Seems like the preparations for the upcoming Assembly Elections in Tamil Nadu has started and AIADMK has taken the first step. After rubbishing reports that her party would have an alliance with the Congress for the coming Assembly polls, AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa targeted arch rival and ruling party DMK claiming it has failed to curb price rise in the state.
Attacking the DMK ahead of the elections in the state, Jayalalithaa said that many members from the party have joined AIADMK in order to protest the ways of the ruling party in the state.
”Today 7,000 people have joined the party… this is only a sample of the discontent,” said the AIADMK chief.
Although, events like these are common in the Dravidian heartland where poaching members from parties is an often seen trend, this move is seen as Jayalalithaa’ s continuing efforts to motivate her cadre. But the problem of price rise that she claims to be fighting for, still continues to give sleepless nights to the common man.
