He got party ticket to contest in the segment for the first time in place of sitting MLA and former minister ND Venkatachalam, told newsmen ”Numerous development works have been carried out in the Perundurai segment by ADMK rule for the past 10 years, especially the Rs. 1640 crore Athikkadavu Avinashi project which was a farmers’ dream project for the past 60 years.
The work under this project is progressing fast.
I will try to raise issues related to this constituency in the first session of the Assembly and take steps to implement all the welfare assistance and development works required by the people in consultation with the people.
I will also take action to construct flyovers at Pethampalayam, Kanchikoil and Vijayamangalam to check accidents in NH47 (Salem-Chengapalli) and integrate Perundurai and KS Palayam town panchayats to upgrade them into a municipality, he assured.
I would like to thank the CM and Deputy Chief Minister for giving me the opportunity to contest in the segment and undertake many more development projects in this constituency, he added.
