The erstwhile All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) regime failed to attract any fresh investments, new industries or create jobs for youngsters, Deputy Chief Minister M.K. Stalin said on Sunday.
Continuing his campaign as DMK candidate in Kolathur Assembly constituency for the second consecutive day, he said the State attracted investments worth thousands of crores of rupees because of the policies of the DMK government and, as a result, jobs were created for several educated youth.
“During AIADMK leader Jayalalithaa's regime, not even one flyover was constructed in the Chennai city nor did her government come out with a single scheme for meeting the mobility needs of the people. However, several flyovers, railway bridges and subways were built in the last five years under DMK rule. Keeping the future transportation needs of the public in mind, Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi has brought the Metro Rail project to the City,” he said.
Contending that DMK Ministers were in touch with the people on a regular basis, he said Ms. Jayalalithaa, on the other hand, spent several months a year at the Kodanad Estate in the Nilgiris. “We don't meet the people only during elections. We have always felt the pulse of the people and implemented several schemes accordingly,” he said.
