Victory shows people’s love for my government : Jayalalithaa
The Lok Sabha election results have reflected the faith reposed by the people of Tamil Nadu on the AIADMK and her leadership, the party leader and Chief Minister Jayalalithaa said on Friday.
Talking to reporters at her Poes Garden residence, she termed the victory for the party led by her, as “historic, unparalleld and unprecedented”. The AIADMK has achieved this ‘massive’ victory on its own without any allies, she said.
Ms. Jayalalithaa also thanked the people for conferring the distinction of the AIADMK “emerging as third largest party in Parliament.”
She said various welfare measures implemented by her government had benefited people. “They have expressed their love for my government,” she said.
“I wish the new Prime Minister well,” she said hoping that the new government at the Centre would be friendly towards the State.
“We will function as a responsible political party,” she said.
Asked whether the AIADMK would support the BJP-led NDA, she said such a situation has not arisen now.
