“Former President R Venkatraman was the architect of industrialisation of Tamil Nadu,” said manufacturers, industrialists and entrepreneurs at the Industrial Estate Manufacturers Association here on Monday.

K V Kanakambaram said Venkatraman was the true architect of Tamil Nadu long before anybody realised the importance and development of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) in the country.

Chairman of Ramco group P R Ramasubrahmaneya Rajha unveiled a statue of Venkatraman at the Industrial Estate Manufacturers Association premises, which is now named as RV Towers to acknowledge the former president’s contribution to the MSME sector and the nation.

An endowment trust to help budding entrepreneurs was also opened. The trust will conduct periodical studies on various issues and coordinate with government departments, leading large industries, educational institutions and importing talent from abroad.

Other aims of the trust include providing shelter or home, meeting medical expenses and providing legal aid to small and medium scale entrepreneurs.

The former president’s daughter Padma Venkatraman, Meenakshi College principal Lalitha, President of TANSTIA K Gopalakrishnan and other eminent dignitaries participated in the event.
