Former Minister Thoppu Venkatachalam, and present Perundurai MLA who is contesting as an independent candidate in the Perundurai constituency, has been allotted the “Coconut Garden (Thennanthoppu) Symbol”.
Announcing this, he said that the drinking water problem of the people of Perundurai block has been solved permanently.
To alleviate water scarcity for the next 25 years in the block he initiated Rs 250 crore Kodiveri dam water project and now 75 per cent of the work was completed.
He is also inspecting the progress of Athikadavu Avinasi project on daily basis to improve the ground water level in the entire segment and find solution to practical issues that may arise under the project.
Those who prevented the project are now claiming ownership of the project.
They have been sinning by expelling him from the party, though he worked hard for the growth of the party in the segment for the past 40 years.
So, he appealed to the people to give success to his real hard work by electing him to assembly.
