AIADMK stages demo against rise in price of essential goods

AIADMK stages demo against rise in price of essential goods

People's sufferings rose many fold under the DMK rule, former minister and Gobi MLA KA Sengottaiyan said.

Heading a demonstration of the party men against steep rise in prices of all essential goods, he said when the late CMs observed fast for rice supply and Cauvery issue respectively, the Centre came forward to resolve the issues. On their footsteps, EPS was functioning so that only the membership of the party touched 2 cr yesterday. Yesterday's NDA meeting at New Delhi showed our imoortance. The NDA led by AIADMK in TN would capture all 40 seats in TN and Puducherry. The DMK promised to give Rs 1000 to all 2.34 cr ration cardholders but now it was said that 1 cr would be given. Of 520 poll promises, a few were fulfilled so far. All vegetables prices rose. In EPS rule, prices were under control, he noted. 

In his speech, former minister and Bhavani MLA said after seeing EPS alongwith PM Modi in the NDA meeting at New Delhi, fear psychosis gripped DMK. After seeing the worst administration of DMK, DMK men themselves started telling Karunanidhi's rule was better though it faced Sarkaria Commission for various corruption charges. Now prices of all essential commodities and power, property and water taxes rose steeply. All development schemes, sanctioned by EPS rule, became standstill in DMK rule. But the DMK rule didn't bother about people's sufferings, he rued. 

Former minister KV Ramalingam, MLAs Jayakumar, Bannari, ex MLAs KS Thennarasu, Sivasubramaniam functionaries KC Palanisamy, Mallika Paramasivam, and many others attended the stir.
