Chennai, March 25: In a bid to woo voters for the upcoming Tamil Nadu Assembly elections 2021, Independent candidate Thulam Saravanan, has promised people a mini-helicopter, free iPhones, Rs 1 crore annual deposit for every home, a 3-storey house including a trip to the moon among several other 'out of the world' promises. Saravanan, an independent candidate from Madurai South constituency, has made all these promises in the election manifesto.

Soon after the manifesto promises were made public, people are of the opinion that these promises are just a gimmick to attract eyeballs and lure people to vote for him. According to reports, the 33-year-old candidate has also promised a robot to reduce the workload of housewives and a 300-foot high artificial snow mountain to keep the constituency cool from the scorching hear during summer season. The poll promises are doing rounds on social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter.
"My aim is to raise awareness against people falling for freebies by political parties. I want them to choose good candidates who are ordinary humble people," Saravanan was quoted by NDTV. Slamming the political parties, Saravanan said political leaders don't work for the welfare of people but try to lure people by throwing money at them and not letting them decide properly whom to chose.
