He said the DMK was firm in its stand against the Salem-Chennai 8 lane road project and hydrocarbon project issues.
He inspected the Red Language Park in Chennai yesterday. The Minister planted mahakani saplings in the park premises and later told reporters: In 2010, when Karunanithi was the Chief Minister, he created a Red Language Park on 7.92 acres at a cost of Rs.8 crores in Chennai in memory of the Red Language Conference held in Coimbatore.
Such parks are required in densely populated Chennai. 24 parks are maintained throughout Tamil Nadu by the Horticulture Department. The Chief Minister has ordered an increase in the number. 78 seed seed lingams have been created and seeds are supplied free of cost to the farmers.
More than 120 new farmers markets will be opened in Tamil Nadu in addition to maintaining the farmers markets started during the Mukha rule.
A decision on banning new agricultural laws will be taken. Appropriate steps will be taken to market jackfruits and bring panruti jackfruits to Chennai without interruption. Action will be taken to provide connectivity to farmers who are waiting for three-way electricity soon.
The DMK is firm in its stand against the Salem-Chennai 8 lane road project and hydrocarbon project issues. This is what the Minister said.
