After months in absence, and without a single public appearance post her acquittal, AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa reached out to her party men asking them not to take hasty decisions based on rumours they heard about the party’s future. In a statement, she said, ““What my dear partymen wish for will happen at the scheduled time. No one needs to worry” while referring to the death of a party cadre, S Raja, who fell in front of a running train to kill himself, reported The Hindu. “Everything will take place as scheduled and there is no hitch on that… The false propaganda of our political opponents will never succeed,” she said, asking party men not to make her sad by their hasty decisions.  Referring to opposition parties in the state, she said that they were trying to spread rumours about her. “Those who tried to defeat me never succeeded in their attempts. Because of this, they are spreading rumours hoping for their political survival. The AIADMK cadre should ignore these canards,” she said. Her statement came after reports of a number of suicides by cadre over difficulties faced by AIADMK and Jayallaithaa. According to the party, Rs 7.32 crore was handed over to families of the 244 persons who had allegedly committed suicide folowing Jayalalithaa’s conviction in a disproportionate assets case. “There is no confusion or complication,” she said announcing a compensation of Rs 3 lakh for the family of Raja.
