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.

Agriculture

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.

Water Resources

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.

Industries

With the economic downturn, the industries in Kongunadu are suffering heavily. Drastic steps need to be taken to protect their interests.

Textiles

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.

Our Vision & Mission & Values

Information Technology

Kongunadu by virtue of its climate, number of Educational Institutions, English speaking Capability is a very attractive location for both BPO and Software Operations. The Current ELCOT Park is inadequate in size given the vast potential in Coimbatore. I will strive hard to establish a 1000 acre IT Park.

Health Care

Kongunadu needs more super specialty tertiary care Government Hospitals to cater to the entire population. Today the no of doctors, Infrastructural facilities that are available in GH and other primary health care centers are grossly inadequate to handle any emergency.

Education

One of principle focus areas will be education. I will strive to improve the quality of education at all levels with a specific focus on primary education and education to below the poverty line families.I will also work towards establishing an IIM, IIT a reality in KONGUNADU.
