As corona infection is spreading very fast all over Tamil Nadu, the State Government has a duty and responsibility to expedite the provision of bed facilities, comprehensive medical facilities and medical personnel in the primary health centers (PHC) to keep pace with the spread of the disease, said Tiruppur MP K Subbarayan.
In a letter to the Chief Secretary, he said that ”In case of loss of life, a family welfare fund of Rs. 50 lakhs should be ensured for health workers.
The State Government should continue to monitor the condition of non-availability of medicines, medical equipment and bed facilities in Government Hospitals and PHCs.
The Perundurai Government Medical College Hospital in my Tirupur Parliamentary constituency continues to receive complaints of inadequate bed facilities, medicines, medical equipment and medical facilities.
He urged the government to look into the problem immediately.
Textile units: Tiruppur MP K Subbarayan appealed to the state government to exempt textile units from night curfew.
He said ” It is reported the curfew from 10 pm to 4 am came into effective from April 20.
Most of the textile industry, especially beninan production and readymade garments, are export-oriented and have to be completed their production in time and dispatch the goods within a specified period of time.
It means they can send it for export. So, night shift is an unavoidable urgent need in this industry.
Therefore, the textile mills, knitting, and readymade garment companies in Tamil Nadu must be exempted from the curfew, with the conditions of strict adoption and implementation of corona safety norms, like wearing face masks, maintaining social space etc.
Train service: In a letter to the Railway MInister, he pleaded to operate a train service from Coimbatore to Chennai Egmore viaTiruppur, Salem, Athur, Virudhachalam, Villuppuram, Melmaruvathur and Tambaram.
This route will connect the industrial cities of Coimbatore, Tiruppur and Salem with the Eastern cities of Villuppuram and Virudhachalam.
Chidambaram, a pilgrim hub of Tamil Nadu and Puduchery may also get effectively connected with the industrial hubs of Coimbatore and Tiruppur through their easy connection with Villuppuram.
This will also facilitate a comfortable link with the Chennai International Airport for the people in the Eastern parts of the state who otherwise are dependent only on the road transport.
Mobility of people from all parts of the state to the Industrial cities would increase.
So, there is a need to operate night train service between Coimbatore and Chennai Egmore.
There was a train service from Mangalore to Egmore which has since been dispensed with.
In the absence of that train service, an additional service from Coimbatore to Chennai Egmore may provide a much needed relief to the people, he opined.
