Govt to take action against rumour-monger officials: Stalin
Tiruchirapalli, Tamil Nadu Sep 11 (UNI) Tamil Nadu Minister for Local Administration and senior DMK leader M K Stalin today said the State Government would initiate action against some officials, who had spread a false propaganda during the last State Assembly Elections.
Addressing a function at Tennur Uzhavar Sandhai Grounds, here this evening, he said the Government had identified some officials, who had spread a false propaganda with the connivance of previous AIADMK regime, that if the DMK regained power, it would dissolve all the Women Self Help Groups (SHGs) in the state.
Mr Stalin alleged that the AIADMK supremo and the former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa had even sent a circular to some officials, advising them to carry out the false propaganda among the public and now the DMK Government had collected enough evidence about the involvement of the officials in this matter.
The Government will take action against those, who were found guilty, he added.
He criticised Ms Jayalalithaa for attempting to create an illusion that the Women SHGs concept was brought only during her regime. She had used the SHGs for political profit, when she was in power, he alleged.
He listed out various welfare schemes implemented during the DMK regime for the upliftment of women.
Mr Stalin distributed assistance to various Women SHGs, laid foundation for new projects and other schemes in the function. In all, he inaugurated 2373 schemes at an estimated cost of Rs 47 crore.
Later, the minister commissioned the Rs 7.90 Crore Drinking Water Augmentation Scheme for Srirangam, near here.
