It was unbeliveable to me.

Yesterday as I was going out from my home in Chinnakool Village I saw the President as he was with a crowd putting up a pendal for a meeting.I got out of my car and after meeting the President of the village I was given to understand that the local beaurocrat would be visiting the village to distribute the free gift by the chief minister for all the BPL ration card holders a Table Fan,A Wet Idli / Dosa Grinder and Electric Juice maker and Mixer.after her victory in recent elections all over the state of tamil nadu.I thought that this may be some ordiary gadget as it was given free and so I was curious to see the gifts.After I saw the gift I felt sorry for the Maruti 800 class of people who voted for her but never even received a tea spoon.The free gift would cost Rs.2,000 for Table Fan,Rs.2,000 for a Wet Grinder and Rs.2,500 for a Mixer all electrically powered devises.The total cost would be to the tune of Rs.6,500 considering the huge quantity of units ordered the govt of tamil nadu might have got Rs.1000 as volume discount for one set.This will work out to be Rs.5,000 per ration card and there are 12,22,913 cards as on 1/4/2004.The present number of cards therefore would be at least 5 percent increase in 7 years.which means we have nearly 13,00,000 BPL cards if bogus cards are also considered than it would be 14,00,000 BPL cars.The value of free gift being Rs.5,000 the total amount spent for free gift would be 14,00,000 X 5,000 = 7,00,000,00,00/-who paid this money and who sanctioned this amount.Will the gifts given to the poor be utilized by them.Is there power supply to all the 17,000 villages in the states.How much extra power is needed if even 50 percent of the gifts is used.Is the state having surplus power.

What ever be the problem of the state BPL people are happy,they got Gas from the previous chief minister and now free rice and idli dosa mixer and maker.

The Maruti 800 class got petrol at higher prices.

      You have to meet the Village Panchayat President and he is only the person who can get you.Now the time has lapsed and you may not get but try.Mixi,Grinder,TV,Fan is not given in Ration Shop.It is given by the Village President at a function organized by him where a Dist Collector OR a Minister for Rural Development will come and distribute to Ration Card Holders.

      The President of the Village must be asked for the reason.The Tahsildar is next and then the Dist Collector is next and then your MLA and finally the Urban Minister of Tamil Nadu who is residing in Krishnagiri most of his time when assembly is not meeting.
