DMK & AIADMK have made tall promises for the upcoming elections. AIADMK has tried to outdo DMK’s promises.

A comparison is give below:

DMK AIADMK Opinion
35Kg rice free every month antyodaya anna yojana scheme 20Kg rice free every month to all ration card holders Waste of resources.
It can be linked to the wages given under MNREGS. If family works then get rice free in addition to pay.
This way it ensures that people still work.
Panchayat officials to be enpowered to grant waiver for specific months if family members are ill and not able to come to work
Free Wet Grinder or Mixer Free Wet Grinder, Mixer & Fan This will increase the electricity consumption. These are BRIBES.
Free Power Supply for Horticultural Crops Desirable but must not be extended to big farms, can be subsidised not given free
Increase free power supply to handloom weavers to 200units bimonthly Desirable.
Free city bus passes for senior citizens Free intra- & inter-city bus passes to senior citizens Will impact the transport corporations more considering they are currently incurring losses due to unsustainable low fare. It would be better if the transport corporation first boost their network and service and introduce higher class service to subsidise normal services (WHITE BOARD SERVICE)
Increase old-age pension to Rs.750 per month Rs.1000 per month for senior citizens, physically challenged, widows Desirable.
Increase amount under Kalaignar Housing Scheme to Rs1Lakh Free house to 3Lakhs BPL families
Similar scheme for others under payment of Rs.1Lakh
Free 3 cents land for homeless families
Free housing must be discouraged. If Govt. constructs the house, then rent must be collected. Rent can be low, but that will ensure that people do not take things for granted.
Free Laptop to all students in 1st year in Govt. & Aided Prof. colleges Free laptop to all students in all colleges (arts, science, engineering colleges & polytechnics) Not Desirable. Must be avoided. The funds that is required for this can be utilised to upgrade the infrastructure of the colleges & schools by buying more electronic learning equipments to be used in common & to provide Internet connection to schools. Individual laptops are BRIBES.
Rs.4000 per month as aid to fishermen during non-fishing season
6 Months maternity leave & Rs.12000/- at child birth Must be extended only for the 1st child.
Nationalise Cable TV and subsidise it Nationalisation is good considering the monopoly and malpractices. Subsidy is NOT.
4Gms gold to brides in addition to existing grant of Rs25000
20Litres of water to BPL families From where will the water come from?
How will it be distributed? Not implementable
4 goats/sheeps to BPL families Good – but must be monitored
60000 cows to be distributed in 6000 villages Good – but must be monitored
4 pairs of free school uniforms & shoes Good
Double subsidy to all students staying in Govt. hostels Can improve the facilities in the hostel using that money
