DMK freebies will not help people develop: Seeman

Ramanathapuram: 'Naam Tamizhar Iyakkam' (We are Tamil Movement) leader and film director Seeman on Sunday described the freebies announced by the DMK in its election manifesto for the April 13 Tamil Nadu assembly elections as schemes that would "defeat the people of Tamil Nadu" and would not help them develop.
Claiming that the State government already owed Rs One lakh crore in loan, Seeman wondered what would happen to the finances if further freebies were announced. The ruling party worried about the people only during the elections and did not bother about their sufferings after the polls, he alleged.

In DMK's election manifesto released yesterday, the ruling party promised it would distribute free mixies or grinders to women, free laptops to SC/ST students and free rice of 35 kg to BPL families if voted back to power.
