[Part-3] AIADMK General Secretary Selvi Jayalalitha Speeches at Coimbatore on 13-7-2010.
AIADMK supremo Jayalalithaa on Tuesday declared she would form a ‘dream alliance’ for the crucial 2011 assembly election and usher in MGR rule in Tamil Nadu. Virtually kick starting her poll campaign in the AIADMK’s citadel of Coimbatore, Jayalalithaa told her partymen: “MGR’s rule will be ushered in soon. The alliance you desire will be formed. I will take care of alliance. And you work towards democratically defeating the DMK.”
Therefore, on a balmy Tuesday afternoon in this textile city, Jayalalithaa turned the heat only on DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi and his family. Significantly, she spared the Congress, though it was a massive public rally organized to protest the recent hike in prices by the Congressled UPA regime and the spiralling prices of essential food items.
“You may say the Central government is responsible for the frequent hike in fuel prices. But, in the 78-member Central Ministry, 12 ministers are from Tamil Nadu and eight are from the DMK. The DMK central ministers should also be held responsible for the increase in prices of fuel,” she explained.
The Union petroleum minister, Murli Deora, had announced that DMK minister MK Alagiri took part in the meeting of the cabinet, which decided on increasing the fuel prices, and the DMK had given its consent for the hike, she pointed out. Touted as an AIADMK’s counter show for the World Classical Tamil conference organized by the DMK regime in Coimbatore, the protest rally drew huge crowds of AIADMK men from across Tamil Nadu to the textile city.
The AIADMK chief asked her partymen not to get lured by ‘bribe money’ and take a vow to end the rule of “Karunanidhi and his family”. In her over one-hour speech punctuated by famous lines from MGR’s movies and roaring applause from the crowds, Jayalalithaa, elaborated on the economics of inflation and squarely blamed Karunanidhi for the drop in agricultural production and failure to curb hoarding and online trading which were responsible for skyrocketing inflation that had shot up by 35% at the retail level. Unleashing a litany of personal offensive against the first family of the DMK, she administered a pledge to her party men to put an end to the “family rule” in Tamil Nadu.
