Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin launched the ‘Kalaignar Magalir Urimai Thogai’ scheme for women today.
Under the welfare scheme, women from impoverished households will be provided monthly financial assistance of Rs 1,000. CM Stalin, who is also the DMK president, launched the scheme from Kancheepuram, the birthplace of the party’s icon and former Chief Minister CN Annadurai. The launch of this welfare scheme has been timed to coincide with the birth anniversary of the late Dravidian icon. The State Minister for Sports and Youth Affairs, Udhayanidhi Stalin, who recently courted controversy with his remarks against ‘Sanatan Dharma’, launched the scheme in Chennai.
