Tamilnadu govt's populist promises to woo the voters are back as the elections are fast approaching. The last election, the CM had announced free colour TV's (but no commitment on uninterrupted power supply). Happened to see 5 lorries of 14" colour TV's outside Govt Boys High School.
I recently travelled through several villages and there are no differences between them - no good roads, no basic amenities for the public.
School kids have to wait for the buses which are not in good condition.
How can a colour TV quench the poor's thirst and hunger?
