(lol) I envy you as I am not a voter in TN. Whether ADMK or DMK grabs power, the voters stand to gain. An avalanche of freebies await the lucky voters of TN.
Now coming to the serious part of your question. The mammoth expenditure on these freebies, come under "populist " schemes, where the exchequer is taxed , but nothing is given in return. A colossal waste of public money on non-productive ventures.
And what is the impact of the expenditure incurred on these free gifts announced with a view to cornering votes? The funds for developmental activities of the state get diverted to purchase these goodies, to make the voters happy. That means lesser outlay on infrastructure, health care, education and the like. The state is the ultimate loser..
