Chennai, August 17 (BPNS)
The leader of Tamil Manila Congress (TMC) and former Union minister, G.K. Vasan said that the DMK is trying to escape from honouring its poll promises by putting the blame of the previous AIADMK government of the state as well as the Union government.
The TMC leader was speaking at a public function at Valluvar Kottam on Tuesday. He said that his party was conducting protest march to draw attention to the unfulfilled promises of the DMK.
Vasan said that the DMK government had given a slew of promises to the people during the 2021 assembly elections and the people had voted the party to power trusting these promises. Vasan said,” Even after 100 days have passed, the DMK government is yet to honour its promises to the people of the state. In the general budget and in the agriculture budget, the DMK government has not given any announcements that were matching on the party’s poll promises.”
The TMC leader thundered that the DMK has not met the promises of Rs 1000 a month to homemakers, cut in diesel prices, waiver of jewel and educational loans and many other promises.
G.K. Vasan said that people had high expectations of the DMK government and now the party is saying that the promises would be met in the course of five years. The former union minister said, “ The DMK is saying that the promises would be met in the course of five years. This is not good, it’s delaying tactics and people won’t accept it.”
