The AIADMK Supremo J Jayalalithaa
who had received threatening letters recently warning her not to
enter Madurai to address her proposed rally on October 18 has said
that she would not be easily cowed down by such threats and would
attend the meeting as planned on that day.
‘I was neither bothered about these threatening letters nor interested
about who was behind such things. "Birth and Death will come
ones in the life. I never bothered about it. To save innocent Tamils
from the clutches of tainted chief minister M Karunanidhi and his
family, I will attend the Madurai Rally", Ms Jayalalithaa said
in an interview to a media last night.
Another threat letter had been sent by ''Vaigai Puyal'' Baalu, recently
stating that he was issuing a final warning to the AIADMK leader
against visiting Madurai. He had earlier sent a threat letter. The
letter also warned Jaya TV wantedly of talking about the murder
of former DMK Minister Tha Krittinan and its lawyer Pasumpon Pandiyan.
The letter further warned that the continual talk about the murder
unnecessarily provoked his ''Annan'' (Elder brother).
Ms Jayalalithaa should think twice before visiting Madurai and asked
her to forget about Maduari. Baalu warned that if she did not heed,
the Jaya TV office, Ms Jayalalithaa's Poes Garden residence, the
residence of Pasumpon Pandiyan and Kodanadu Estate would be simultaneously
To this Ms Jayalalithaa said, ''I am used to it (facing such threats)
and it will not in any way affect her service to the public and
I am not bothered if anything happens, despite this I will participate
in the Madurai rally as planned’’.
''I believe that death will come only once and I am ready to face
whenever it comes,'' she said.
