DMK’s Colour TV Economics

The Hindu has some gyaan on how the DMK intends to provide Colour TV’s:

Explaining how the DMK would implement the scheme if it came to power, he said there was a total of 156 lakh families in the State. Of this, 53 lakh were below the poverty line. At Rs.2,000 a television set, and assuming that all those under the poverty line needed to be given one, this scheme would cost only Rs.1,060 crore. If the DMK came to power, it would implement the programme over two years. The Government needed to spend Rs.530 crore a year.

  • MK has not anywhere in that speech mentioned how he's gonna mobilise that money.

    Forget the money part, just imagine the logistics involved. It would be an exercise in fulitity.

    And who calculates what i sthe poverty line. As compared to the personal forunes amassed by him, I'm a very poor guy.

    Kaps, its just getting crazier

  • Its not a gyaan from Hindu. It merely reported what MK, the clown said. Its not an editorial.....
