Minister Parithi Ilamvazhuthi praises Chief Minister Karunanidhi

Karur: Information Minister Parithi Ilamvazhuthi has said that doubts over distribution of colour television sets and implementing other welfare schemes by the DMK Government have been dispelled due to the far-sightedness and ingenuity of the Chief Minister, M. Karunanidhi.

Inaugurating the distribution of free colour television sets at the Manavasi Samathuvapuram in the district on Saturday, he claimed that within a short period of just about four months, the State Government was able to do much for the welfare of the downtrodden. So far, a total of 25,264 colour television sets have been distributed all over the State in the last two days.

The promises the DMK made in the run up to the polls have all come true. Claiming that there was a transparent government in the State, the Minister said the formation of all-party committee to purchase the TV sets best exemplified the claims.

Collector T. N. Venkatesh said TV sets were being distributed to the inmates of the Samathuvapurams at Manavasi, Manmangalam, Velliyanai, Puthambur and Chinnapanayur on the occasion. The Karur MP K.C. Palanisamy, MLAs P. Kamaraj (Krishnarayapuram), R. Manikkam (Kulithalai) and Khaleelur Rahman (Aravakurichi), the District Revenue Officer, S. Natarajan, the DMK district secretary Vasuki Murugesan, the Karur Municipal Chairman K.V. Ramasamy, participated in the function.
