"So, it (the manifesto) is totally a bundle of lies," he said. DMK had also not taken any steps to retrieve Katchatheevu islet, ceded to Sri Lanka by India in 1976, Raja alleged.
The BJP leader will contest from Thiyagarayana Nagar constituency in the upcoming polls. DMK President M Karunanidhi had released the party's manifesto last week promising prohibition, setting up of Lokayukta and a cut in the milk price of government-owned AAVIN.
