When the Tamil Nadu government announced free bus travel for girls and the Dr.Kalainar Women's Entitlement Scheme, which provides Rs.1000 per month to heads of households, there was some opposition. Some criticized whether it was good for the country to give away money for free.
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K.Stalin declared that the plan he announced and implemented is a social welfare plan and thus women's savings will increase and their standard of living will rise. As he said, happiness blossomed in the woman's life.
Following Tamil Nadu in the Karnataka state assembly elections, the Congress announced a plan to give Rs. 2500 per month to the heads of families. And it has come to power there.
Earlier, Prime Minister Modi, who was campaigning for the state assembly elections, slammed the free scheme. But as there was no other option and BJP announced some free scheme in haste. Realizing that it was just an election announcement, the voters chased the BJP away.
At present, elections are going to be held for 5 state assemblies. Congress, a national party that is part of the INDIA Alliance, and many state parties that are facing this assembly election have announced free schemes. Despite PM Modi's constant talk against freebies, the BJP invariably takes up the weapon of freebies during elections.
Yes. Union Home Minister Amitshah said during the Chhattisgarh state election campaign that if the BJP comes to power, Rs. 12,000 per year to a girl will be given and also a cooking gas cylinder will be given for Rs. 500.
This is against the policy of Prime Minister Modi. Why couldn't he stop it?
Thus, Modi, who criticizes the freebies of the opposition parties, passes the announcement regarding the freebies of his own party without saying anything.
Political commentators also question, 'What Prime Minister Modi and others talk about as 'freebies' are welfare schemes for the poor. BJP opposes such projects.
However, the opposition parties criticize that the BJP government provides tens of thousands of crores of rupees to big corporate companies.
'BJP is not against those freebies given to big corporates. During the last nine years of BJP rule, the BJP government has given Rs. 25 lakh crore to big corporate companies as tax breaks and loan waivers.
The opposition also criticizes that it is completely free.BJP leaders including Prime Minister Modi should not criticize against free schemes anymore. Criticism like that would be ridiculous.
Thus, the BJP has accepted the social welfare programs of the Dravidian model government in Tamil Nadu.
Henceforth, it has become possible to conduct politics only if all political parties take forward the social welfare programs of the Dravidian model government across India.
This is a victory for the DMK, which runs the Dravidian model of government!
