New Delhi: With elections around the corner in the state of Tamil Nadu, promises by leaders have begun. Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) chief Captain Vijaykant has promised to fix the price of petrol prices at Rs 45 and diesel at Rs 35.
Vijaykant also went ahead and said that he would take 500 farmers abroad every year to enable them to learn farming techniques.
The experts have countered this political sop by Vijaykant and said, “Won’t it be easier to bring experts to India instead and then make the Indian farmers to learn the new farming techniques.” The opposition even believes that the promises on the manifestos of DMDK are just to lure the voters and are not practically possible.
These promises by the DMDK superemo have been met by strong criticism on social media.
