Ahead of elections in Tamil Nadu, poll bonanza was on offer by the ruling AIADMK. It has not only withdrawn cases against government employees, their retirement age has also been increased to 60. Chief Minister K Palaniswami has also said that students of class 9th, 10th and 11th will be promoted to next classes without any exam. DMK president M K Stalin took a swipe at Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami for raising the retirement age of government employees to 60 years, saying the announcement was made with an eye on the forthcoming assembly elections in the state.
