Chennai, Jan 16: Waging a legal battle against her conviction in an assets case, AIADMK general secretary Jayalalithaa on Friday said that a life lived overcoming challenges and miseries was special.
In her message to party workers ahead of party founder M.G. Ramachandran's 98th birth anniversary on January 17, she said the love and respect "we have for him" should be reflected in ensuring the growth of the AIADMK.
"There cannot be a life without challenges and miseries.
But it will be special (only) when one faces them with grit and overcomes them. The life of MGR teaches us this lesson," she said.
She said by allowing her to take forward the party and thus serve people, Ramachandran had done her a ‘big favour.'
The love and respect the party workers had towards Ramachandran should reflect in keeping the party intact, she said.
