Tiruchirapalli: AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa
today hit the campaign trail for the April 13 Tamil Nadu
Assembly polls by attacking the ruling DMK regime, alleging
there was "jungle rule" in the state devoid of law and order.

Launching her campaign from the temple town of Srirangam,
from where her ancestors migrated to Mysore, she alleged that
the DMK rule has become "a single family" (Karunanihdi) rule.

She said the 2G spectrum scam, in connection with which DMK
leader and former Telecom minister A Raja is in jail, had
lowered the state`s image all over the country.

She said though the DMK was part of the UPA government, it
had not taken any steps to control the soaring prices of
essential commodities.

Jayalalithaa said if her party was voted to power, it would
bring back the derailed economy of the state on track and
take it in the right direction.

Coming down heavily on the UPA government for "raising
petroleum prices nine times in a span of three years,"
Jayalalithaa accused the DMK government of not taking any
steps to solve Cauvery and Mulla Periyar issue with Karnataka
and Kerala respectively.
