TN reducing investments on power generation : Chidambaram

chidambaramAgencies, Sivaganga, TN
Union Finance Minister  and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram today charged that Tamil Nadu Government was reducing investments in power generation.

Addressing an election campaign at Karaikudi in support of his son Karti Chidambaram, who was contesting from Sivaganga Lok Sabha constituency as Congress candidate, he said, “due to lack of investments in power projects, power cut returns to the state once again.”

He also accused the ruling AIADMK government of reducing wages under the Centrally-sponsored Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) that provides 100 days of guaranteed wage employment in a financial year.

The Centre was spending Rs 30,000 crore on the scheme in 2013-14. He also recalled the various people welfare schemes implemented by Congress-led UPA government that includes waiver of Rs 65,000 crore agricultural loans.

Stating that the Congress will win considerable number  of seats in Tamil Nadu in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, he said a new government at the centre sans Congress would be a bad luck for the state.
