Erode: Lauding DMK government`s performance
in Tamil Nadu, Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday assured voters that all poll promises made by the ruling
Democratic Progressive Alliance would be implemented in the
state.

Launching his campaign here, the Congress leader said in
the last five years a number of industries was started in the
state and the Union government had liberally granted funds for
industrial and other development.
Detailing the schemes implemented by the UPA at the
centre, Rahul said he was proud of them as many other
countries were following the schemes of the Indian Government.

"Youths are to be given importance in all fields and
keeping this in mind, the Congress will give importance for
them in future," he said.

On the growing pollution in Erode district, he said the
problem would soon be solved with the support of the Union and
state governments.

Erode was noted for its textile industries but because of
various problems including pollution, the industry was facing
crisis, he said.
Rahul, who arrived from Coimbatore by a helicopter, later
left for Karur.
