EPS seeks white paper on GIM

EPS seeks white paper on GIM

Former CM and AIADMK General Secretary Edappadi K Palanisamy sought white paper on Global Investors Meet (GIM).

Campaigning for Tirupur LS AIADMK candidate Arunachalam at Kavundapadi on Friday, he said that though he sought the white paper many times, it was not given. He asked whether the CM went to Spain to lure investment or invest there. 

During his rule, all tanks, lakes and ponds were desilted to store rain water. Rs 1640 cr Athikadavu Avinasi water project was initiated. But it was not yet completed during the 3 year DMK rule. 

The ryots were given flood relief upto Rs 34000 per acre. But, now, it was reduced much. L and Order was in worse condition. Ganja was sold everywhere. The prices of essential commodities were skyrocketed. Stalin was not able to protect TN. How can he protect India, he asked. 

He said of 7 check dams, sanctioned by him in Bavani river, one was alone constructed. DMK rule dropped the rest. Whenever DMK came powercut will come. But his rule arranged 24 hour power supply. The rule got many awards in agriculture, rural development and health department etc from the Centre. The DMK rule didn't get any award. Only corruption, commission and collection were seen. The CM Stalin is in the dream of becoming PM, he charged. Former Ministers KA sengottaiyan, KC Karupanan, and Perundurai MLA S Jayakumar spoke.
