Chief Minister MK Stalin attacked the opposition parties, particularly the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, on Saturday, alleging that the AIADMK had placed a significant financial burden on the state during its administration.
The All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam was among the opposition groups that Chief Minister MK Stalin assailed on Saturday. He said that the AIADMK’s reign has put a great deal of strain on the state and that the 2019 state budget will include a statement about a monthly support programme for every woman in Tamil Nadu who is the head of her home.
“We keep up with fulfilling the poll promises. The Chief Minister addressed a gathering in support of Congress candidate EVKS Elangovan for the Erode East by-elections and questioned the opposition on what happened to the Rs 1000 per household given to women. In the 2019 state budget, which will be presented in March, he said that the pledge to provide Rs 1,000 per household will be kept.
“I’ll remember the poll promise. We now owe a substantial amount to you (AIADMK). The budget discussion is scheduled for next month. The date from which women will start receiving Rs 1,000 per month would be announced at that time, he added.
He claimed that his administration has delivered on 85% of the election-related pledges while addressing at a rally in Erode East in favour of DMK-backed candidate EVKS Elangovan.
