KONGUNADU MAKKAL DESIYA KATCHI
For the last 61 years since our Independence, this part of the country has been consistently ignored by all the parties and politicians and this is well reflected from the fact that a city like Coimbatore, which is the second largest city in Tamil Nadu and with indomitable private entrepreneurial spirit doesn’t even have one Public Sector Company, doesn’t have proper infrastructural facilities that is due to it. Why are we in this state? This is because of the fact that the political parties that have represented us in the past didn’t have an agenda and didn’t have the vision to develop Coimbatore. This is truly the reason why the people of Kongu Nadu have now come together and started Kongunadu Makkal Desia Katchi.
Kongunadu, especially the rural parts and the suburbs of the Constituency is dependant on Agriculture for the livelihood. It has been a trend of all the political to continuously neglect lead community time and again. KMDK was started primarily for the welfare of the agricultural community.
As we all know water is the most important resource that is required for our livelihood. None of the politicians or political parties have done enough to save water.
With the economic downturn, the industries in Kongunadu are suffering heavily. Drastic steps need to be taken to protect their interests.
Coimbatore is called the manchester of South India. We got this nick name not because of the Government efforts, it is because of the indomitable private entrepreneurial initiatives. If the Government and elected representatives have supported this industry properly, we would have been the World's best now. Some of the initiatives that I will undertake are, uniform cotton pricing, encourage cotton production, Government funded direct export agency etc.
