Ahead of the General Assembly elections, the state of Tamil Nadu witnessed a heated political climate. As the polling is set to be conducted on April 6, the Election Commission directed the political campaigns to be wrapped up on Sunday (April 4) at 7.00 pm.
Accordingly, all the political leaders were involved in their last phase of campaigning yesterday. In that regard, Minister for Municipal Administration, Rural Development, and Implementation of Special Programme S P Velumani organised a press meet where he addressed the people of Coimbatore, Tiruppur and Nilgiris.
Minister S P Velumani, who is contesting for the ADMK from Thondamuthur constituency, spoke to the press in his office in Sugunapuram, Coimbatore on Sunday. He said, “We have witnessed tremendous growth in 11 Assembly constituencies, including the Avinashi assembly constituency in the Coimbatore district. In addition, bridges have been built in all the required places in Coimbatore.
In particular, we have made possible the construction of the largest bridge to a length of 10 km in the city. The airport expansion project is likely to create a lot of jobs. People have been given houses by building the highest number of apartments in Tamil Nadu through the housing scheme for all. We have created an improved structure for the government hospital”.
He added that 6 government colleges have been brought to Coimbatore and today the poor students are benefited where they pursue their higher education at a cost of Rs1500. He then said, “Law and order in Coimbatore is good. There are no issues like construction and land grabbing anywhere. We have got 11 medical colleges in Tamil Nadu, of which we have two colleges in our area, Nilagiri and Tirupur”.
He then went on to praise the Chief Minister by calling him a commoner and a farmer and that he is ruling the state well. He also said that they are working with conscience without deceiving the people who have elected them. He said that the CM has released an outstanding election statement. “He has announced many projects for everyone, including the washing machine. It is the people of DMK who are involved in misconduct. AIADMK cadres are very honest. Once again, Edappadi Palanisamy is the Chief Minister”, he said.
He said that the DMK’s continued attack on journalists was highly reprehensible. During this press meet, the Federation for the Kurumbas met the minister and extended their support for ADMK.
