What I feel is this. During the election period, the party, especially the ruling party, distributes cash to lure the voters, illegally. This activity is always opposed by the opposition parties. Election commission carefully watches this distribution. The party concerned fears and distributes the cash to the voters secretly.
Whereas, now, the same is distributed in advance, to all the voters irrespective of any party followers officially through the Public Distribution System. No one can object to this legal distribution of government fund. The party leaders enjoy this means and method of distribution as their pockets are not affected.
I still wonder as to how such a huge sum is spared by the government. To distribute rupees 1000 each to one crore ration card holders requires rupees 1000 crores. Does it mean the Tamilnadu government has excess cash in their government treasury?
