Jayalalithaa govt hikes milk prices, bus fares in Tamil Nadu

Chennai:  Milk and travelling by bus will both cost a lot more now in Tamil Nadu.

Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa has raised the price of milk from Rs. 17.75 to Rs. 24 a litre.

In Chennai, the cheapest bus journey will cost Rs. 3 instead of Rs. 2. The most expensive fare – earlier Rs. 12 – will now cost Rs. 14.

There could be worse to come. The electricity department will suggest new prices soon.

Blaming the DMK government which she replaced in May, the Chief Minister said, “The  DMK regime has left several departments in  huge debt, near bankruptcy.”

She also faulted the union government for not providing the state financial assistance.

Referring to the fact that the Centre is working on a bailout package for Mamata Banerjee, who is an important  partner in the UPA coalition, she said, “States run by non- allies of  the UPA are ignored. West Bengal, which is run by an UPA ally, was given a Rs. 21614-crore package.”
