Chennai: Taking a swipe at Tamil Nadu
Chief Minister Jayalalithaa`s "Vision 2023" document, her
arch rival and DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Saturday said the
proposals will remain a mere `dream` as there were no funds to
implement them.

"Her dream project is (to ensure) 20,000 mw of power in
another ten years, (constructing) 25 lakh houses and imparting
human resources training to two crore people. This will remain
a dream," he said writing in the party mouthpiece `Murasoli.`

The 88 year-old leader said it made the newspaper
headlines for a day as these "are schemes from funds that
don`t exist" and charged Jayalalithaa with trying to garner
publicity.
The Chief Minister had released her Vision 2023 document
on Thursday, spelling out the blueprint for making the state
`Numero Uno,` envisaging massive investments in various
sectors including infrastructure.
