Karunanidhi trying to deceive people of TN: Jayalalithaa
03 June 2013

Tiruchi: Taking strong exception to the criticism being made by DMK president M. Karunanidhi and his son M. K. Stalin over AIADMK government’s welfare measures, chief minister J Jayalalithaa accused both leaders of deceiving  people by making contradictory statements.

Laying the foundation stone for new projects, inaugurating the completed projects and distributing various aids to beneficiaries to the tune of Rs 1,854 crore at a function held at her constituency Srirangam on Monday, Jayalalithaa pointed out that she had been making announcements on various schemes on the floor of House by invoking rule 110 based on representations made by the public and the legislators.

She alleged that M Karunanidhi used to criticise them stating that they were ‘mere announcements’

After she pointed out, citing some examples, that steps had been taken to implement 127  of the total 136 announcements she made on the floor of House by invoking rule 110 during 2011 and 2012, Karunanidhi changed his stand and said such announcements by  invoking rule 110 should be implemented. Otherwise the assurance committee of the  Assembly will start questioning about the fate of such announcements, Jayalalithaa said.

But, his son Stalin still keeps criticising the announcements and asks if 50 per cent of these announcements can be implemented, Jayalalithaa said and alleged that both Karunanidhi and Stalin were deceiving by making contradictory statements as  announcements were benefitting the people.

Jayalalithaa said she had been making all out efforts to make Tamil Nadu numero uno state in the country besides fulfilling her election promises.

Distributing welfare measures worth Rs 59.76 crore to 1.40 lakh beneficiaries, Jayalalithaa pointed out that she was also working for the improvement of the state’s infrastructure, various developmental activities across the state besides launching exclusive new schemes for children, women, people belonging to backward, most backward class, farmers and other section of society.

She said her government had proposed to establish an industrial park at an outlay of Rs107 crore on a sprawling 1027 acre site near Manapparai in Tiruchy district to attract Rs 3,000 crore of investment besides providing employment opportunities to 25,000 persons.
