Jaya to  kick-start campaign today

Marching ahead of others in Tamil Nadu, the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam  (AIADMK) supremo and Chief Minister Jayalalitha will launch her whirlwind campaign from Monday.

Even as her major rivals Karunanidhi's DMK, actor Vijayakanth’s DMDK and BJP are yet to finalise their electoral tie-up, Jayalalitha is setting out on a grueling over a month-long electioneering in the first phase covering 19 of the 40 Lok Sabha constituencies at stake, including one in neighbouring Puducherry.

Starting her electoral campaigning at the temple town of Kancheepuram, Jayalalitha, who is eying a bigger role at the national level since defeating the DMK in the 2011 Assembly polls, is expected to make the performance of her three-year-old government as one of the main planks and highlight the populist schemes.
