Thoughts of Periyar

Compare the living status of agriculturists and peasants with that of the merchants living in the towns and enjoying the benefits.

Remarks of Hon'ble Former President of India on Periyar PURA

Recently I had visited Periyar Maniammai college of technology for women and inaugurated a PURA Complex. This PURA complex has all the three connectivities - physical, electronic and knowledge - leading to economic connectivity. The centre of activity emanates from the women engineering college that provides the electronic and knowledge connectivity. Periyar PURA has health care centres, primary to post graduate level education and vocational training centres. This has resulted in large scale employment generation and creation of number of entrepreneurs with the active support of 850 self-help groups.
