Karunanidhi to announce more sops on Oct 2
Chennai (PTI) : After reducing the price of PDS rice from Rs two to RS one per kg, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi on Saturday said he is going to announce more sops for the poor and middle classes on October 2.
"I am sorry that I cannot disclose what the scheme would be. It is aimed at benefitting middle class and poor sections of the society. The scheme would come into force from October 2,he said at a function here.
The DMK government's move to launch a slew of sops was seen as an attempt to gear up for the next Lok Sabha polls.
This scheme would be launched to commemorate the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, a day which is as important to us as that of C N Annadurai's (DMK founder) birth anniversary," he said.
