Women paid to do ‘aarti’ of Karti Chidambaram question Rahul Gandhi’s NYAY after receiving Rs 32 instead of the Rs 500 they were promised

Karti Chidambaram, son of senior Congress leader and former Union Minister P. Chidambaram, was given a Lok Sabha ticket by the Congress party from Sivaganga constituency in Tamil Nadu

Congress leader Karti Chidambaram, an accused in various scams and financial irregularities, faced an embarrassing situation after ‘paid’ followers that the Congress party had arranged to welcome him during his rally, questioned the credibility of Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s claims of minimum income guarantee through ‘NYAY’ scheme.

According to Polimer TV, Congress party leaders had arranged few women to welcome scam accused Karti Chidambaram with ‘aarti’. Nearly 25 women were paid for his promotion and were allegedly promised to be paid Rs. 500 each for welcoming Karti Chidambaram, as a part of his public relation exercise ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

The villagers who were brought to perform ‘Aarti’ for Karti were shocked to realise that they had only received Rs. 800 and were asked to share the money among the 25 women present there. Essentially, while Congress had promised these women Rs. 500 each to welcome Karti, they ended up getting only Rs. 32 each.

Outraged by this, the village women lodged their dissatisfaction towards Karti when he arrived at the spot. Faced with embarrassment, Karti Chidambaram promised them of providing Rs.6000 per month under the proposed Nyay Scheme as announced by the Congress President Rahul Gandhi.

Angered by the false promise made by the supporters of Karti Chidambaram, the group of women further questioned the credibility of the Congress party and asked how Congress party will provide Rs.6000 per month when they cannot even give Rs.500 as promised by the party leaders earlier.

Karti Chidambaram, son of senior Congress leader and former Union Minister P. Chidambaram, was given a Lok Sabha ticket by the Congress party from Sivaganga constituency in Tamil Nadu. He was given a ticket despite the fact that he is under investigation in the INX Media case and Aircel Maxis case.

However, the Congress party’s decision to allow Karti to contest from Sivaganga despite several corruption allegations has not gone well within the party. Sudarshan Nachiappan, a senior Congress leader and former union minister, had said that the cadres are disappointed with the decision. He further asserted that the Chidambaram family has done nothing for the people of the constituency and giving Karti a ticket could harm the reputation of the party.
