Flagship schemes to stay; Nokia is work in progress

The government was making serious efforts to revive the Nokia plant and a ‘Mission Mode Housing Programme’ would be implemented to ensure slum-free cities and hut-free villages, he said in his first address to the 15th Assembly. “The government is committed to improving transparency in administration and will establish the institution of Lokayukta in Tamil Nadu, once the proposed amendments to the Lokpal Act are enactedby Parliament,” he said. Industrial corridor-based development, particularly the Chennai-Bangalore and the Madurai-Thoothukudi corridors would be given top priority, he said. As part of this, Ponneri would be developed as a vibrant industrial node.
