Will enter 2022 achieving social development, says Stalin


Chief Minister MK Stalin said on Thursday that the state would enter 2022 with the hope of achieving social development, especially women’s well-being, on par with infrastructure development.

“I made seven promises to you during the party’s election campaign in Tiruchy and I have no doubts that I kept all of those promises and now I firmly believe that we can certainly keep those promises,” Stalin said.

Inaugurating several completed projects and laying the groundwork for various projects including the coveted Tiruchy Integrated Bus Station, the chief minister said, we have led a government with great conscience and new energy visible across the state.

Stating that infrastructure development is visible, the CM said it will be happier when social development, including women’s well-being, increases along with infrastructure development. He said the social justice Periyar dreamed of began to prevail and at the same time, empowering women should also be a priority. Likewise, the state has witnessed industrial development and we are also more concerned with agriculture. So the government created a separate department because agriculture is our backbone.

Recalling that his government had witnessed several problems shortly after taking charge, Stalin said there was the COVID-19 pandemic at its peak, then there was flooding. “But the whole government stood by the side of the people and the people saw that there was a government for them and that we could resist it with the support of the people,” he said.
