We won because of our policies: Jaya

May 16, 2005 18:21 IST

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Monday said that the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam's win in the by-elections to the Tamil Nadu Assembly is a forerunner to the 2006 assembly polls in the state.

"The victory is people's endorsement of my government's policies," she told reporters in Chennai.

While the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam contested it under the seven-party Democratic Progressive Alliance banner, her party contested the polls on its own, the CM said.

"Unlike the DMK, we didn't have to split our votes between seven parties," she added.

Jayalalithaa said her party is confident of contesting the assembly polls alone without aligning with any other party.

"The results have proved that the people are with the AIADMK," she added.

At Kancheepuram, it was an eight-party alliance, she said. "You all know who is the eighth party. I do not want to name it," she said in an obvious reference to Jayendra Saraswathi, Sankaracharya of the Kanchi mutt.
