Resistance motivated by politics, says Stalin

VILLUPURAM: Amidst controversies over the choice of site and opposition from the AIADMK and the PMK, Local Administration Minister MK Stalin laid the foundation stone for Villupuram government medical college.

Speaking after laying the foundation stone for the 15th government medical college at Munidiyampakkam, Vikravandi Union, near Villupuram yesterday, Stalin took a dig at the AIADMK and the PMK by saying that 'some' were 'doing politics' by opposing the government medical at Mundiyambakkam.

Showering praise on his Cabinet colleague Ponmudi, Stalin said the Higher Education Minister was responsible for several infrastructural facilities for the district like the new bus terminus and collector office in Villupuram and the Tindivanam-combined water supply scheme.

'The Villupuram Medical college will be built on an estimate of Rs100 crore. While Rs 80 crore would be earmarked for construction purposes, Rs 20 crore will be spent on buying equipment for the institution,' the Local Administration Minister said.

The college would be spread in 18.20 hectare and would have all the requisite facilities. It would offer 100 undergraduate medical seats taking the total number of seats in the State to 1745, Stalin explained and informed that the construction works will be over by March 2008.

'We are implementing all that we had undertaken in the election manifesto,' he said and added that under the Anna Renaissance Scheme all the 12,618 village panchayats in the State would be developed.

As a first step, 2001 village panchayats have been selected and development works are being carried out at a cost Rs 20 laksh for each village. The scheme would be extended to also cover all the 561 town panchayats.

In Villupuram district, out of the 15 town panchayats, in the first phase 4 were selected and development works are being done at a cost of Rs 35 lakhs for each local body, Stalin said.

Minister for Health, KKSSR Ramachandran presided over the function, and the a host of others particiapated, including Higher Education Minister Ponmudi, Union Minister Venkatapathi, and District Collector Brajendra Navneet.

Why he bother about motivations, if he has political guts, he should have met the critics with his points, if he has any, to appraise the choice of site at a huge tank which helps ground water recharge apart from maintaining a eco system thoug ceased to serve as a direct irrigation source, as claimed by the government.
