    Dear Sir, How we are gonna achieve employment for each family? Do they get government job or private one? With current system, we have more professional degree holders than opportunities, Do we reduce this ratio periodically?. Related to employment process here, I believe we have unworthy employment office in all regions. How we are gonna make it effective? Since, all private hiring doesn’t comes through govt employment office. right now, Private organizations hire thier employees directly from the market or reputed institutions. This makes an unemployment for the educated people form rural areas. What plane we have to overcome this problem?

    1.Startups are the talk of the day. Chennai is far behind other cities like Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi when it comes to technology based startups. What plans do you have to develop the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurship in Tamil Nadu?
    2. Is it possible to bring alcohol prohibition completely? Do you have any successful model to implement prohibition? How are you planning on compensating for the income? Will regularizing the Granite/Sand business help? How do you plan to take on the powerful Sand/ Granite mafia who have deep connections within the government? How will you overcome the hurdles posed by the law in taking on this mafia?
    3. Agriculture based industry is a good idea. How do you plan to bring organic farming and do you have any plans to generate income for the government by involving in agriculture?
    4. Do you have any plans for cleaning the waterways in Chennai? Is the cleaning of Cooum river feasible since these have been tried before and failed? How confident are you in cleaning waterways of Chennai and other cities of TN?
    5. How do you plan on overcoming the water scarcity in various districts of TN?
    6. Is free and quality healthcare possible for all? Do you have any successful model in mind for implementing this?

    Sir u need to be more clear on what sort of employment as your current commitment looks as if u r assuring a government job for one in a family which may not be possible and unviable. Please clarify that by aggressive industrialisation you will create ample opportunities for employment in both urban and rural cities which sounds better or if ur plans are to provide govt jobs???!

    I’m working in IT sector in Bangalore. I’m basically from Salem, Tamilnadu. Earlier worked in Chennai based company for around 10 years. Both Chennai/Bangalore already experiencing huge traffic, Pollution, price rise, house rental amount issues, real estate issues and many other issues.

    During festival season/long weekends huge rush on the road (bus, train, car). Many times had to spend lot of time at Toll gates to pay the toll fee. Road transport not safe.

    Many people has same questions in my circle, it will be good if you have solutions to address the same.

    Why don’t we keep the Govt Offices/Assembly building/Educational Instuitions/IT Companies at the middle of the state and having secondary branches on all the major cities? So that, they can save time, transport will be less avoid personal overheads etc.

    Majority of engineering graduates are jobless now and another big group will be coming out soon. Most of them are not having good enough knowledge in language/communication/analytical skills. What is your plan for current graduates ? How do you overcome the issues for subsequent year graduates ?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Sir, I would like to ask you very simple question – Many graduates pass our of college every year and all are not employable, reasons being

    1. communication, – This is a big hurdle for many youngsters who do their graduation from semi-urban or rural areas. Due to this unemployment is very high

    2. gap between academia and industry, – What you learn in theory does not fit in Industry more over all colleges will not have the infrastructure to have latest machines that are used in industry and this leads to unemployment

    3. quality of education from primary school level, – Getting teachers and right teachers in rural area is another problem

    4. affordability of education – This is a big subject by itself

    I am trying to get to the root of the employment which in turn has direct impact on industrial development. We need to have quality resources to run the industry which we are lacking.

    Other point is infrastructure – we are not seeing growth beyond 5 to 10 years and it is a failure model, since by the time we complete (we always overrun every project) we are again to ground zero.

    I think these two are primary requirements for growth, eagerly waiting to hear from you. Thanks in advance

    Dear Anbumani,

    You are very vocal against the various priceless schemes implemented by the Dravidian parties. These freebies have a direct impact on the women households and empower them.

    In a more broader context, the advancement of technology had let to machines being replacing humans jobs, which in a overall context good for the human society. For E.G, it took 30 people to make a car in 1990s while this got down to 15 in 2000s and 5 person in 2010s, while a lot of human work is displaced by robots. This has in term lead to Jobless growth and a direct beneficiary being the Government with higher opportunity to collect direct and indirect taxes.

    My question to you Sir – We cannot reverse the trend of technology doing human work which will lead to raise in unemployment. It is the duty of the government to distribute the money to people through scheme as social security. Since you are against the concept of providing free benefit scheme and the reality is less and less employment for human, how are we going to provide the social security to all the unemployed citizens.

    Dear Sir,

    You had strong overseas experience and visited many developed countries. Basically our small scale industries, particularly in TN are not upto standard. If technical professionals want to start a industry, he or she need to clear so many check levels and also current state government discourage them so far.

    Could you please elaborate your plan for state small scale industries development ?

    What is your idea to eliminate unnecessary steps on industries approvals ?

    Thanks in advance Sir.

    I am Sankar Balaraman from chennai, i am Automation Engineer. My question may be stuipd but i need clarification, if you look any graduate from tamil nadu they are very good in technical but we are too lagging in communication skills and administrative. This is very negative to startup the small scale question first how we can correct the basic problem. Are you planining any new traning institute or the existing traning institue going improve to world standard. I have 15 years experince i have reasonable capital to startup the small scale but not able to collect market trend like demand and risk deatails.are you have any plan to address this issue like new website for small scale startup procefure and market trend details..

    we have lots of opening in all organisation, but the thing is whether we are qualified for that Job.

    do you think our education system gives that knowledge, also I think half of the teachers are not capable for teacher profession. t

    How you are going to Improve our student and teacher’s skill?
