Creating more jobs is his mission

Balasubramanian wants to tap manpower resources



K. Balasubramanian.

Tirupur: The technocrat-cum-businessman-turned-politician K. Balasubramanian (61), candidate of Kongunadu Munnetra Peravai for Tirupur Lok Sabha constituency, wants to use his professional expertise to bring holistic development for the constituency if he is elected.

Diversification

His mission statement focuses on creation of more jobs for people in the region and to optimally tap the manpower resources here for diversification of industrial activities rather than keeping the economy of the region dependent just on garment production business alone.

Potential

Mr. Balasubramanian, an engineer by qualification and the president of Tamil Nadu Chamber of Nippon (Japan) India Trade and Industry, foresees potential for setting up electronic component manufacturing units considering the wide base of workforce available in the region.

International hub

Similarly, units that manufacture buttons, zips and fasteners can be set up here offering employment opportunities since such accessories are still coming from towns elsewhere despite Tirupur has grown as an international hub for finished knitwear products, he points out.

He thinks that as an elected representative he can lure investments in these segments to bring Tirupur region back on the development track.

Traffic snarls

Creation of more road overbridges will be given priority since major traffic snarls are occurring at the umpteen railway crossings in the city, he says.

Combating pollution in the Tirupur knitwear cluster, according to him, will be one of his top agendas.

Pollution

The elected representatives from the region had failed miserably to tackle pollution and had not sought adequate financial assistance to combat it in spite of the fact that the Central Government earmarked about Rs. 4,000 crore every year for pollution control measures, Mr. Balasubramanian says.

He wants to give good support price to farmers in Bhavani, Gobichettipalayam and Anthiyoor for agriculture crops like sugarcane, among others.
