A challenge for Election Commission

The two major Dravidian parties of Tamil Nadu have been vying with one another in offering a wide range of freebies that are budgeted to cost the exchequer Rs 94,100 crore during 2020-21 and this is expanding. 

With elections to the state assembly just a few months away, political parties of Tamil Nadu are stepping up their campaigns. AIADMK, spearheaded by Chief Minister E K Palaniswami, has been vigorously campaigning across the state. Principal opposition DMK, led by M K Stalin, has been active in reaching out to villages spread across the state.
