Madurai: Terming the Tamil Nadu government as "anti-women" DMK leader MK Stalin on Saturday alleged that crime against woman in the state has increased by several folds.
Addressing a series of way-side meetigs as part of his 'namakku namee' (self reliance) programme, he said during the AIADMK regime 380 women had died due to dowry harassment. The development schemes that were introduced during the DMK regime had been deliberately left on the back burner.
He assured the women that the DMK would close liquor shops. "That will be the first file the DMK government will sign", he said.
He listened the grievances of various sections of people including cattle rearers.
Stalin said rearing of cows had become a "burden" with the government offering only Rs 22 per litre of milk while they sold it for Rs 40 a litre.
