75% of promises fulfilled, says MK Stalin


CHENNAI: Chief minister M K Stalin on Thursday said his government had issued orders for 1,238 announcements made in the governor’s speech, financial and agriculture budgets and for announcements made under Rule 110 in the assembly.

He said government orders had been so far issued for 75% of the announcements made in the last eight months of assuming charge.

In a 10-minute self-appraisal video, released on social media, Stalin said his first orders upon assuming charge included 2,000 cash aid for PDS rice card holders, cut in Aavin milk price by 3 per litre, free bus ride for women, setting up a new department - Ungal Thoguthiyil Muthalamaichar - and providing Covid treatment in private hospitals under CM health insurance scheme. “One thing is for sure, this Stalin will surely fulfil the promises he made. Let no one doubt it,” he said.

The government had released a book containing various announcements made by him under Rule 110 (suo motu) in the assembly and also the announcements of ministers. “Our activities are very transparent,” he said.

Asserting that speedy movement of files was an important sign of good governance, Stalin said he had signed 2,619 files out of 2,683 files sent to him since May. His ministers had also been directed to decide on files without delay.
