Former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa paid special attention for the growth of textile industry in the state during her entire tenure as chief minister, the Southern India Mills' Association (SIMA) has said. Jayalalithaa served five terms as TN CM, for over 14 years between 1991 and 2016. She breathed her last Monday night in Chennai.

Jayalalithaa Jayaraman, fondly called 'Amma', was very proactive in all the textile policy matters and even in the recent meeting with prime minister she personally took up the long pending issue of Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme and the industry could get the entire subsidy arrears cleared up-to-date within a short span of time, SIMA chairman M Senthil Kumar said in a press release.

She also helped to resolve the textile effluent pollution issue and successfully implemented the zero liquid discharge treatment system and made Tamil Nadu as the model for the entire globe in terms of sustainability, Kumar added.

She also came out with numerous welfare schemes to eradicate child labour employment in a proactive manner.

SIMA chairman highly praised the bold and proactive steps initiated by the former CM on a war footing to mitigate the acute power shortage problem that prevailed in Tamil Nadu during 2008-2011. It is due to her steps that Tamil Nadu has now become the highest power surplus state in the whole of country, thus making the entire industry in Tamil Nadu highly competitive in the global market.

He added that she was the first chief minister to demand for an exclusive green corridor for transmitting the green energy across the country and also motivated the industrialists in the state to make large scale investments in wind power and solar power generation, which helped Tamil Nadu become a leader in green energy generation and protecting the world from global warming.

Cotton Cultivation Mission, a proposal mooted by SIMA, was another policy measure announced by Jayalalithaa for increasing the area under cotton, quality, productivity and the income for cotton farmers in Tamil Nadu, said Kumar.

SIMA chairman also recalled the support extended by Jayalalithaa for the development of Palladam Hi-tech Weaving Park. He added that the entire textile community in the state and the nation would remember the contributions made by the great leader. (RKS)
