Jays flays Centre for adopting negative approach towards Tamil Nadu
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and AIADMK Supremo J Jayalalithaa today castigated the Centre for adopting a negative approach towards the state on all issues and said she would overcome all the hurdles posed by it with people's support and safeguard the rights of the State.
Speaking after solemnising marriages of Industries Minister P Thangamani's son and Highways Minister Edapadi K Palanichamy's close relative, Ms Jayalalithaa said the Centre had been turning a blind eye to the demands of the State be it kerosene quota, Cauvery and Mullaiperiyar issues or in alloting additional power from the Central pool to tide over the power crisis.
"Today, I am the Chief Minister of the State and I want to provide all the basic facilities for the people", she said, adding, "but I cannot fulfill them as the Centre is putting spokes in the wheel".
The Centre has been posing numerous obstacles and hurdles by consistently reducing the quantum of kerosene provided to the State.
