In order to gain power, the DMK has made unfulfilled and impossible election promises and published the slogan “Let’s do what we say, we will say what we do” in the election manifesto, thereby gaining power. DMK is running an “anti-people model” rule in Tamil Nadu in the way of “we will not do what we say, we will do what we say”.
It was announced that if the DMK comes to power, the electricity bill will be collected once a month. This has not been implemented and has imposed additional electricity charges on people. It was promised that property taxes would not be raised until the economy recovers after the corona crisis. Property tax has been increased by 150 percent while the economy is not improving. An election promise was made that old pensions would be given to government employees and teachers. After coming to power, the government employees have to be removed according to the allowance. If the DMK comes to power, the NEET exam will be canceled from platform to platform. Now cute selection has come different.
An election promise was made that 500 restaurants would be set up in the first phase to satisfy the hunger of the poor people. But steps are being taken to dilute existing Amma restaurants. It was mentioned in the election manifesto that Pongal Thirunal will be celebrated across the state as a grand cultural festival. Judging by the food items offered on Pongal Day, the day was celebrated as Black Day. The Pongal package provided by the DMK government contained such substandard and allergenic products.
An election promise was made to waive off jewelery loans under 5 pounds in co-operative banks. In fact, most people are left with debt. Similarly, every promise made by DMK is being implemented back and forth. The DMK is running a regime in Tamil Nadu that is oppressing the people by calling it the “Dravidian model”.
In that regard, the DMK promised to reduce the price of cow’s milk by Rs 3 per litre. Although the promise was fulfilled, to compensate for the loss, Aa’s products such as curd, ghee, butter and ice cream were increased manifold. For example, when the DMK came to power, the price of half a liter of curd was 27 rupees; 54 per liter. Today, the same yogurt is sold at Rs 35 for half a liter and Rs 70 for a liter. Similarly, when the DMK came to power, the price of a liter of ordinary ghee was Rs 515. Today, the price of that ghee is selling at 580 rupees. 200 grams of almond powder has been increased to Rs 100 from Rs 80. Small ice cream prices have also been hiked by Rs 5. If asked the reason for this, the DMK government will explain that it is GST. But the reality is that prices have been inflated beyond that. Meanwhile weight loss is different.
As if this is not enough, the prices of sweets sold by Aavin have been hiked in the run-up to Diwali. The price of one kg unsweetened goa has been increased from Rs 520 to Rs 600, half a kg of date goa has been increased from Rs 230 to Rs 270, quarter kg of rasagulla has been increased from Rs 80 to Rs 100 and half a kg of Mysurba has been increased from Rs 230 to Rs 270.
Ever since the DMK government took charge, it has been acting as an anti-people government which has not fulfilled its sweet promises and has been giving bitter medicines to the people. On behalf of the AIADMK, I strongly condemn the DMK government, which is deceiving the people by calling it ‘Dravidian model’, and I request that the increase in the price of the products be withdrawn.
Due to the DMK rule of one year, the poor people went to the verge of despair and started shedding tears. The Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu should stop the act of harassing the people and take action to fulfill the election promises. Otherwise, I would like to point out that the tears shed by the people will become a weapon to destroy the DMK regime.
He said this in a statement.
