"I have successfully implemented a host of schemes, both short-term and long-term to benefit all the families in Tamil Nadu," she wrote in a letter to her party workers.
AIADMK regime had implemented various schemes including freebies like 20 kg rice for ration card holders, mixers, grinders and milch cows and goats.
However, several of these schemes had attracted flak from opposition with allegations of corruption.
Highlighting her regime's performance, she cited 'achievements' like creation of 1.5 crore new job opportunities and setting up of the 'highest number' of small and micro industries in India.
"Tamil Nadu people are living happily, protected by rule of law," she said.
Referring to the DMK-Congress alliance as 'unholy', she asked her party workers to tell voters that this combine would jeopardise the efforts of Tamil people who are striving hard to win back their rights in Sri Lanka.
