Jaya prepares AIADMK  for 2016 Assembly polls

Former Tamil Nadu chief minister amnd AIADMK supremo J Jayalalitha, who was granted bail by a Bengaluru court in a disproportionate assets case, is back in action and has begun chalking out agenda for the 2016 Assembly polls in Tamil Nadu.

Jayalalitha has decided to start working from ground zero to strengthen AIADMK’s organisational structure by weeding out adverse elements, even at the zonal level, and holding elections for all posts in the party framework.

In her latest such move, the former chief minister on Tuesday removed S Balasundar from the post of zonal secretary at Tuticorin Thattarmadam due to his involvement in anti-party activities. Likewise, ever since Jayalalitha returned to Chennai after getting bail in October, many “unwanted” cadres were dismissed from their posts, including at the ward level, on the basis of instructions from the party high command.

Jayalalitha has also restructured the AIADMK’s governing bodies in all 12 city corporations and at the union level in several districts. In the first phase, select unions were divided into two in many districts, including Thanjavur, Villupuram, Tiruvannamalai, and Dharmapuri.

“This revamp is not only for the elections, but also to ensure that deserving cadres get opportunities at various levels,” a senior AIADMK leader told Deccan Herald on the condition of anonymity.

He said the party’s senior leaders had also been instructed to maintain strict vigil in all districts to monitor all the party functionaries’ activities and supervise the implementation of welfare schemes like distribution of free mixer-grinders, laptops and marriage benefits to poor women.
