DMK treasurer MK Stalin, on Sunday, accused Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa of lying about her achievements and of ‘borrowing’ ideas from DMK.

Stalin, who was campaigning for sitting Congress MLA S Vijayadharani at an election rally in Vilavancode constituency in Kanyakumari said, “She said she has fulfilled all that she promised and more than what she had promised last elections. That’s hardly surprising since she was born and brought-up in lies.”

The popular Tamil song enacted by AIADMK founder MGR, “Poiyile Pirandhu, Poiyile Valarnthu (Born in lies, brought up in lies)” was an apt song for the Chief Minister, he said.

He said that it was DMK Chief M Karunanidhi’s idea to ban all the liquor shops as far back as in 1974 and that she was borrowing their ideas, as always.

Earlier in the day, the AIADMK supremo released a statement saying that she has fulfilled all the promises made by her before the previous assembly elections in 2011.

Elaborating specifically on the education sector, Jayalalithaa said that Rs. 252 crore was allotted for the betterment of 13 colleges under Anna University. She stated that over 100 government middle schools have been upgraded to high schools and added that 54 new primary schools were started, currently providing education to over 300 students each.

She also said that the resource centre in Santhome, set up by her, is the first of its kind in India, concentrating solely on the needs of special children. And she further added that over 900 teachers and 100 headmistresses were appointed during the tenure.

“Rs.40 crores were spent on more than 2648 lines for drinking water connectivity under the rural development scheme and it was all completed,” said the statement by Jayalalithaa.
