In another hoarding, the popular South Indian politician, who is also known among her supporters as 'Puratchi Thalaivi' (Revolutionary Leader), can be seen being applauded by world leaders, such as Russian President Vladimir Putin and controversial North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Jayalalithaa, whose party All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) always has played a crucial role by being a kingmaker in the Indian parliament, is now being touted by her supporters as a prime ministerial candidate. In another hoarding put up by her supporters, Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse can be seen kneeling before the Tamil Nadu CM.

Tamil Nadu, which has a not-so-friendly relations with Sri Lanka, has always been opposed to the Indian government's soft stand on Sri Lanka. The words on the hoarding says: “This is how our PM should be. Who can be so, other than our Amma? Think, people!”.
