Quick understanding of GER👇

Conducted for the year 2018 - 19

or

after completing 10 years of schooling & is of the duration of at least 3 years.

₹16,500 Crores Freebie for 1.6% Voters.

DMK promised Education Loan waiver in their 2016 Poll Manifesto. Total loan due then was ₹17,000 Cr

DMK promises Education loan waiver for 2021 Election. Total loan due as of 2019 was ₹16,500 Cr
Last year for 24,315 Applicants, loan disbursed was ₹740.87 Crores. Average loan per applicant is 3 Lakhs.

So for ₹16,500 Crore loan, it is roughly 5.5 Lakh applicants. Assuming the family will vote for this; this roughly translates to 15 Lakh Votes.
On an average we see only 70% voter turnout and presuming 80% of these beneficiaries decide to cast their vote for DMK - 8.4 Lakh Voters (15 Lakh x 0.7 x 0.8).

₹16,500 Crores proposed expenditure for 1.6% Voters.

Vote wisely people.

2008 - Nisha Cyclone

⚡️ Relief Fund Requested from Central Gov : 3789 Cr

⚡️ Funds Approved and Released under NCCF in 2008-09: 523 Cr

⚡️ Of the 652 Cr compensation to Farmers, the DMK govt claimed in 2010 to have received only 46 Cr of the Central share of 306 Cr but..
As per 2008-09 Appropriation of Accounts, the funds spent for farmers on account of Floods was 500.85 Crores. No expenditure in 2009-10 on this header.

On the other hand state government claims to have spent 306 Crores on farmers due to this flood.
This only mean 194 Crores was central Grant of the total 501 Crores.

Why did the DMK minister say they received only 46 Crores??

திமுக தான் விவசாயிகளுக்கு இலவச மின்சாரம் வழங்கியது: இன்னொரு பொய்

விவசாயிகளுக்கு இலவச மின்சாரம் 01.04.2004 முதல் அதிமுக அரசால் வழங்கப்பட்டது. இது 01.04.2006 இல் SFS (சுயநிதி) பிரிவு விவசாயிகளுக்கும் நீட்டிக்கப்பட்டது. திமுக ஆட்சிக்கு வந்தது மே 2006 இல்.
திமுக உண்மையில் செய்தது 2016 அக்டோபரில் Jesus Callsக்கு கட்டணத்தை HT III இலிருந்து HT II B ஆக மாற்றியது தான். இதன் காரணமாக TNEBக்கு மாதத்திற்கு ஒரு யூனிட்டுக்கு ₹1.5 இழப்பு. Jesus callsக்கு தற்போது தமிழ்நாட்டில் 34 மையங்கள் உள்ளன. HT II B கல்வி நிறுவனங்களுக்கானது.
ஆண்டு வாரியாக வழங்கப்பட்ட விவசாய மின் மானியம்

🔌2005-06: ₹ 200.42 Cr (அதிமுக)
🔌2010-11: 271.80 Cr (திமுக)
🔌2016- 17: ₹ 3,336.77 Cr (அதிமுக)

சக்தி இல்லை, கோரப்பட்டபடி இலவச பம்ப் செட்டுகளும் தரவில்லை. மானியங்கள் அதை மட்டுமே குறிக்கிறது.

DMK Only Gave Free Electricity to farmers: Yet Another Lie

Free electricity to agricultural consumers was given in 01.04.2004 under AIADMK government. It was extended to farmers under SFS (Self Financed) category in 01.04.2006. DMK came to power only in May 2006.
What DMK really did was Converting Jesus Call’s Tariff from HT III to HT II B in October 2016. By virtue of this TNEB lost ₹1.5 Per unit per month. Jesus calls currently has 34 Centres in Tamilnadu. HT II B is actually for educational institutions.

Tamil Nadu in Dark & DMK sleeping over a turbine Shaft

Kodayur Dam & Hydro electric Project was taken up by TNEB in 1963 during the Kamarajar Regime. 65 MW Hydro electric power plant was commissioned in 1972.
In June 2004 the plant developed a major failure in the turbine shaft. By Aug 2004 temporary repairs was carried out and the plant was put in operation. By Nov 2004 decision to replace the shaft was taken & since Jan 2005 the plant was run under reduced load of 40 MW.
Subsequently there were issues with the proposal validly and later was amended by the supplier. Finally the PO was issued in January 2006. The contractor backed out in February 2006 citing increase in price. Briefly post this the DMK came to power.

Family First always for DMK

Sun Network’s Profit after Tax grew from ₹269 Crores to ₹772 Crores during 5 years of DMK rule between 2006 and 2011.

The promoters (DMK family) own 77% stake in this company. (1/n)
2006, It was AIADMK leading in the pre poll analysis before the DMK’s Manifesto came out. Three main Poll promises: Free TV, 2 Acre land for every landless farmer & Farm loan waiver. I had already published on the farm loan waiver, Lands were never given, TV time now! (2/n)
DMK fulfilled their Poll promise of Free television Costing the exchequer ₹3687 Cr. TVs were even distributed to households which hasn’t received electricity. Anyways TV is not a commodity which has a shelf life. So it is still fine to burn ₹2.5 Crores in this process. (3/n)

தமிழ்நாட்டு விவசாயிகளை திமுக & காங்கிரஸ் உழவர் கடன் தள்ளுபடி என்ற பெயரில் ஏமாற்றியது எப்படி?

2006 ல் மீண்டும் ஆட்சிக்கு வந்த பின்னர், அனைத்து விவசாயிகளுக்கும் கடன் தள்ளுபடி செய்வதாக திமுக அறிவித்தது. 4000 கூட்டுறவுச் சங்கங்களில் எடுக்கப்பட்ட மொத்த கடன்கள் ₹6526 கோடி.
2007 ஆம் ஆண்டில், அன்றைய நிதித் துறை அமைச்சர் தனது பட்ஜெட் உரையில், தள்ளுபடி செய்யப்பட்ட கூட்டுறவு கடன்கள் கூட்டுறவு நிறுவனங்களுக்கு 5 தவணைகளில் 8 சதவீத வட்டியுடன் திருப்பிச் செலுத்தப்படும் என்று கூறினார். tnrd.gov.in/Announcement_p…

By June 2005, TN had 134 and Gujarat (Since it is taken for comparison) had 105 Connections for every Thousand Household. By 2011, TN grew to 372 and Gujarat to 139. Here’s how?
In 2009, UPA launched the free cylinder scheme for BPL. RGGLV took of in October 2009. These 3 Lakh Free Cylinders were issued only after that time and hence the spike in rural penetration.
As you could see, below is the LPG distributors in south India which showed growth only after 2009. Now new rural distributors were appointed and no new gas connection was given as claimed.

1985 - 90: Increased by 4.63

By March 1997, India held just $29.3 billion in reserves.

Total Sqm area of the new secretariat building including both blocks is 1,55,000 Sqm - But this plinth area is not seated area.

Almost 40 to 50% of the plinth area in Block A is double height atrium which has only two floor. Plinth area is not necessarily habitable area. Image
Secondly, the cost mentioned is estimated cost and not the final cost of the project. The final escalated cost of the project is more than 1474 Crores cited BBC.

India today called it a 1200 Cr project and Wiki sources say it is 1100 Crores. So the cost mentioned is wrong. Image
Secretariat costed ₹95,000/Sqm in 2010/11.

Parliament building is constructed at a cost of ₹1,41,230 in 2020

At 6% inflation, the secretariat building construction will be ₹1,70,131/Sqm today

The same secretariat would have costed 2637 Crores Today.
