Dropping a broad hint of her readiness to play a major role in national politics, Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Friday said she has a vision for India in which Tamil Nadu will play a key role.

The All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) leader, whose name is making rounds as a possible prime ministerial candidate, revealed her vision for a “resurgent India,” at a function where she unveiled various policies besides the second part of Tamil Nadu Vision Document 2023.

Her vision, she explained, is of a “nation with an inclusive society and open markets; a nation of enterprise and creativity driven by knowledge and shaped by family values; a nation of growth with equity; a nation with peace stability and development; [and] a modern secular and prosperous India.”

“I want to assure you all that this day is not far,” she said. “It is my firm conviction that within India, Tamil Nadu will emerge as the epicentre of such power.” Her “government is not a government that merely talks and puts out lofty ideals and policies; it actually gets down to taking hard decisions and staying the course.”

On the Vision Document 2023, which has set a target of 14 per cent growth in the manufacturing sector every year, she said since the launch of the first phase in March 2012, the State government had signed 33 MoUs with various companies.

The total investment envisaged in the projects was Rs.31,706 crore, and the employment potential was for over 1.62 lakh persons.

Documents pertaining to 16 of the MoUs, for setting up various projects at an investment of Rs.5,081 crore were signed by representatives of the companies and Principal Secretary Industries C.V.Sankar in the presence of the Chief Minister.

Ms.Jayalalithaa also unveiled the Tamil Nadu Industrial Policy 2014; the Tamil Nadu Automobile and Auto Components Policy 2014, described as the first such; and the Tamil Nadu Biotechnology Policy 2014. She launched the website of the Tamil Nadu Infrastructure Development Board.
