Written by: Staff

Tiruchirapalli, Apr 16 (UNI) Senior CPI Leader R Nallakkannu today ridiculed Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalitha's announcement on conducting a survey on linking the state's rivers.

Talking to newspersons here, Mr Nallakkannu said the(interlinking) project cannot be viable as the 'rivers were dry.' On various welfare schemes announced by Ms Jayalalitha in her election manifesto, he said there was no guarantee she would fulfill the promises considering her government's track record vis-a-vis the last manifesto.

The CPI leaer said he could see a 'massive wave' in support of the Democratic Progressive Alliance (DPA) led by the DMK in Tamil Nadu, during his election tour.

The allinace will win majority of the seats in the ensuing Assembly elections, he claimed. On the pre-poll surveys conducted in the state, he said it 'reflects their opinion.' Regarding DMK's offer of two acre land in its manifesto, Mr Nallakkannu said it was practicable as, according to Tamil Nadu Government's 2003-04 statistics, about 64 lakh acre of land were available in the state.
