The All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) on Friday exhorted cadres to take a vow to see that the party wins the 2021 Assembly polls for the third time in a row, a “historic feat,” to ensure it holds the reins of power during its golden jubilee celebrations (2021-22) and work towards it from now on.
Virtually sounding the bugle for the Assembly elections due next April-May, AIADMK top leaders O Panneerselvam and Edappadi K Palaniswami said, “2021 will be a very important year for all of us.” On the eve of the party’s foundation day celebrations, the duo, in a letter to party workers, recalled the electoral success reaped by party founder M.G. Ramachandran and late supremo Jayalalithaa and emphasised hard work to reprise victories.
Panneerselvam and Palaniswami are coordinator and co- coordinator of AIADMK respectively.
“Let us make the historic achievement of AIADMK remaining in the seat of power during its golden jubilee celebrations,” they said and exhorted cadres to start work right from today.

Hailing the sacrifices of scores of cadres since its inception,Palaniswami and Panneerselvam said: “Let us start a new journey towards the golden jubilee year.
Let us take a vow for continuance of the golden rule of the party.” The AIADMK was founded on October 17, 1972 by its iconic leader Ramachandran and the golden jubilee celebrations due between 2021 and 2022.
