In a message to partymen, she exhorted them to work for her party candidates as if she herself was contesting from the respective constituencies.
    
Hitting out at the UPA government at the Centre, she slammed it for price rise "from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and Gujarat to Assam."
    
Party workers should spread her government's good work besides the "injustice" towards her state by the ruling UPA, in which her arch-rival DMK was a member for nine years, she said in a statement.

"Election is a tool for us to uphold Indian democracy," she said.
    
She said public life and political service were like "prayer" which had no place for one's personal feelings.

"I wish to see all my party siblings to work keeping in mind this aspect," she said.
    
Jayalalithaa, who has been nurturing a greater political role at the Centre post elections, has fielded candidates in all 39 seats in the state besides the lone Puducherry segment.
