News Tech: Tamil Nadu Finance Minister Dr. P Thiaga Rajan has criticised the BJP and demanded to know if the free amenities in the states it is in power “descend from the hand of God” amid the ongoing controversy over vote handouts.

The case may also be brought before the Supreme Court following a petition asking for the cancellation of the registration of events that make such commitments.

During an interview about the significant political conflict between the BJP and the Opposition over ballot giveaways, the minister was chatting with NDTV. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent warnings against pre-election promises of freebies—which he referred to as “revdi culture”—set off the controversy.

The tribunal has now asked the centre to define “freebies” and has also requested responses from the Aam Aadmi Party and the DMK, which Mr. Thiaga Rajan is a member of.

Responding to the Prime Minister’s remarks on the difficulty, the Tamil Nadu minister stated the BJP authorities in Uttar Pradesh just lately introduced free bus rides. “Is the Prime Minister positive for negative on that? In Tamil Nadu, our predecessor AIADMK [A BJP ally] decided to give scooters at half the price for one lakh women and the Prime Minister came to inaugurate that scheme. What was his thinking then?”

“It is farcical, this one rule for me, another rule for you logic. They give away and nobody is to question because it descends directly from the hand of God. And if anybody else gives, they say, ‘no, no, it’s a bad freebie’.”
