TIRUCHY/MADURAI: Chief Minister ‘Edapaddi’ K Palaniswami on Sunday said there was no backlog of files and that the problems of citizens were being addressed systematically. He was speaking to reporters before the wedding of the son of Minister of Social and Backward Classes Valarmathi at Lalgudi in Tiruchy district.
Palaniswami, who flew in here in the evening, was received by ministers Valarmathi and Vellamandi N Natarajan, Corporation Commissioner N Ravichandran and Tiruchy Police Commissioner A Arun.
“Almost all the government schemes are for the welfare of people and are being carried out in a bold manner,” he said, in an answer on recent allegations that the government was not keen on taking up welfare measures.
“The Kudimaramathu scheme is helping several people. A total of `100 crore has been allocated to desilt 1,019 ponds. An additional grant of `300 crore will be provided for 2,065 ponds,” he said.
The Opposition is just spreading baseless allegations against the government, he said, while calling for proof for statements made about the functioning of the government.
All the schemes announced under Rule 110 of the Assembly by former CM Jayalalithaa were on track, he said.
Meanwhile in Madurai, ministers held a consultative meet with officials on conducting the birth centenary celebrations of late Chief Minister M G Ramachandran. Madurai has been selected as the venue, where the celebrations will begin. Eight ministers - Dindigul Srinivasan, K A Sengottaiyan, R B Udhayakumar, Sellur K Raju, K P Anbalagan, G Baskaran, O S Manian and R Kamaraj - were present.
