Swamy criticizes Jaya for spending Rs 25 crore to celebrate her one year in office
Chennai, May 16 (TruthDive):Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday criticized Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa for spending Rs 25 crore to celebrate her one year in office which went on an overdrive with front page advertisements in almost all national dailies.
Today’s edition carried a full-page advertisement highlighting the one year achievements of the AIADMK Supremo J Jayalalithaa.
The Janata party president while condemning the act of the AIADMK said that the money could have been spent for some other good cause. ‘ When the state was facing several problems, what was the necessity to spend such a huge amount for such purpose? Where did the money come from?, Swamy questioned.
When Swamy was asked by the reporters about the achievements of the AIADMK government, he said that he did not see any difference between the present government and the previous government.
The Janata Party president said that Tamil Nadu is going across acute power shortage, and as a result the growth of the agriculture has also come down. Farmers are facing severe problems to meet their end. He also pointed that, as the state government earlier backed the agitators against the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant, the commissioning of the plant also got delayed for a year.
On the other hand, the AIADMK party men while enjoying her one year in office of their supremo said that, most of the poor families, who are below average, seem to be happy. The government is giving 20 kg of free rice to the poor and 35 kg to the poorest.
Apart from four grams of golden mangalsutra, Rs 25,000 is also given at the time of weddings. The pension has been raised for the elders, poor, widows, and differently abled women to Rs 1,000 after Amma came to power; she enjoyed wide support in the state, at the same time the number of enemies is also on the rise.
