Gearing up for upcoming elections, AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa on May 5 unveiled her party manifesto.
In 2006 she had promised to give 10 kg free rice every month, along with four gram of gold for the ‘mangalsutra’ of poor women who were getting married and free laptops for students who passed class 12th exams.
In 2011, AIADMK had promised supply for 20 litres water and 20 kg free rice for the BPL families. Besides that Amma had also promised four free sets of uniforms and a pair of shoes for the school children and free laptops for the class 11, 12 and college students, which she had distributed after the elections were over.
Tamil Nadu is set to go into elections on May 16, with votes to be counted on May 19.
