It is just a shameless appeasement policy.
However, there is a silver line too.
Jayalalitha is providing subsidy for Hindu pilgrimage too along with what given to minorities.
Other states and central government must take inspiration from this.

The survival of Congress/UPA depends on such appesement of minorities. So they do it.
In the process majority people are ignored. If peopl like Modi come to power, all, I mean, ALL will be treated equally.Tricky 'vote-bank' politics will come to an end.

It is all because of the vote bank. Only God must save us from all these mishaps.
