Tamil Nadu Politics - Is it the Worst in the Nation

One the one hand we talk about the IT boom and all the Multi-National companies that are setting shop in Tamil Nadu. On the other hand look at this shameful election politics.

Does TN have a budget surplus to handle this. Isn't there anyone to ask these parties/politicians..how they plan to fund all this. Whose money do they plan to spend for these stupid schemes?

I think the Central Govt. should take these things seriously and come up with a new law to stop these atrocities.

Why do these parties go to these levels? Is it to serve the people. God!. Comeon people of TN ..wake up...the state is being robbed.

These are the freebies so far:

Karunanidhi
  • 2 Per Kg. Rice, Free Television ( For the poor!)
  • Waiver of loans for farmers
  • 2 acres of land to the landless poor
  • Kerosene at subsidised rates
  • LPG stoves to families of poor
  • Allowance for educated employed youth till they get employment
Jayalalitha

  • 10 Kg of rice free of cost fo all Ration card holders
  • 4 Grams of Gold for marriage of poor girls
  • Waiver of loans for farmers
  • Might announce free Kerosene to rural folks

Vijayakanth
  • 15 kg of rice free of cost
  • Rs.500 to the poor families every month for purchase of groceries
  • Supply the ration goods at the doorsteps of the card holders

Nobody mentions about progress and development but cheap ways to entice voters and thereby directly insulting the intelligence of common man.

I think it is more of a knee-jerk reaction from JJ ! She just does not want to miss out on the 'October Suprise' factor whereby MuKa's demagoguery rules int the week preceeding the election !

In the poll arithmatic.. freebies seem to matter.. there is general impression that MK's freebies have resonated with the public.. and this might get him back to power..

The irony in all this is that.. the tax paying middleclass will fund all these freebies but are not eligible for any of these.. On the other hand.. all they want is good governance and infrastructure.. which is not in the radar screen for any political party..

This, as a tactic was pioneered by JJ in a move to augment her support after the 2004 parliamantary debacle.
