The DIC(K) might have the TV election symbol. But the DMK seems to be making it more popular.

Fulfilling a major election promise, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi Friday launched the distribution of free colour TV sets to the poor at Padappai near Chennai on the 98th birth anniversary of DMK founder C N Annadurai.

Here is what I like about the whole episode, they kept their word.

But is this responsible? Tamil Nadu was worst hit by the Tsunami of December 2004. Have all those people’s lives returned to normal? Is TV essential?

Voters of Tamil Nadu, will you vote of Jayalalitha if she were to promise you computers for free? Please ask yourself if this is free. It’s your taxes that’s paying for this. Money that could have been used to build school etc are being used to buy your votes.

Think about it.
