Cinema, freebies spoiled the future of TN: Ramdoss

Coimbatore: PMK Founder Dr S Ramdoss Thursday termed cinema, alcohol and freebies as the bane of development of Tamil Nadu and said they are spoiling the future of youths.

"This situation has to be changed and Tamil Nadu should be freed from cinema culture, as is being witnessed, since an actor is Chief Minister and another is leader of the opposition in the Assembly," Ramdoss told reporters.

Claiming that freebies offered by both Dravidian parties-- DMK and AIADMK, for the last one decade have spoiled the future of Tamil Nadu and its youth, he claimed PMK was the only party which was fighting on ideology.

He reiterated that he committed a mistake by allying with AIADMK and DMK for the last 10 years and would never enter into any alliance with them in future.

Ramdoss blamed successive governments for the present power crisis and said government should tap the potential of thermal and hydel, wind and solar powers to meet energy requirements.

Though AIADMK leader Jayalalithaa had promised to remove power cut within three months of assuming power, the power cut has increased to 11 to 12 hours daily now, he said.

He also termed as a 'joke' her claim that law and order situation was good in the State, given that a murder was taking place in the capital daily.
