Chennai : On the second death anniversary of Jayalalithaa, the ruling AIADMK took out a silent march and pledged to win all 39 seats in forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Chief Minister K.Palaniswami and his cabinet colleagues, Members of Parliament and the state assembly and other leaders donned black shirts and took out a silent procession from Anna Statute on the Anna Salai here to Jayalalithaa’s memorial on the Marina beach.
The party leaders took a pledge to work hard and win the ensuing bypolls for the assembly and also the Lok Sabha elections.
DMK leader and Rajya Sabha member Kanimozhi in a tweet paid tributes to Jayalalithaa. “Surviving as a woman in a male dominated political world is not an easy task. Late ADMK Chief Jayalalitha confronted the challenges and proved successful. The lack of clarity shrouding her final days are very unfortunate and not befitting the leader she was,” Kanimozhi said in a tweet.
Jayalalithaa passed away on Dec 5, 2016 after a prolonged treatment at Apollo Hospital here for 75 days.
