Modi’s pat for Coimbatore industry

Amid his blistering attack on the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance and the Third Front, at an election meeting here on Saturday, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi showered praise on the industry in Coimbatore on its efforts to promote infrastructure development.

“Normally, industrialists avoid anything related to elections. But, I see that the industry in Coimbatore has come out with a 10-point charter of demands as a manifesto on infrastructure development. I praise the captains of the industry here,” he said.Mr. Modi promised his party’s assistance to the industry and the general public in fulfilling the development requirements listed in the manifesto. Party functionaries adorned Mr. Modi with a garland of 1,000 lotuses specially made to honour him.

Mr. Modi often cited various measures his Government had initiated in Gujarat for economic and infrastructure development.The Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Residents’ Awareness Association of Coimbatore and 110 other trade bodies and citizens’ groups brought out this manifesto, Vision Kovai – Mission 10, that included inputs from various sections.

Roads, flyovers, mass transit system, a new master plan, an internal train network, better rail link with other regions and airport expansion were some of the major demands.Expressing a special liking for Coimbatore because of its historical importance, Mr. Modi said he had the opportunity to meet the widow of freedom fighter Tirupur Kumaran during his previous visit.
