 Tamilnadu Vanigar Sangankalin Peramaippu, a federation of traders’ associations in the state have submitted a request to the chief minister urging to declare Trichy as the state’s second capital.

State president of the association A M Vikramaraja and state general secretary Ve Govindarajalu and other office bearers on Monday met CM Edappadi K Palaniswami at his office. They said that the recent views expressed by the state ministers R B Udhayakumar and Sellur Raja to name Madurai as the second capital were against the aspiration of AIADMK founder M G Ramachandran. “In the past years, several welfare projects such as AIIMS and Madras high court bench actually intended at Trichy were relocated due to political reasons. Even now, the call to name Madurai as second capital is seen as another move to snatch away Trichy’s growth potential,” Govindarajalu said.

The federation urged the chief minister to fulfil the vision of former CM MGR in making Trichy as state’s second capital. The traders in their written request substantiated that Trichy city has several education institutes that are centuries old and an ecosystem for multiple industries to thrive.

They added that Trichy situated in the geographical centre of the state and with robust rail, road and air connectivity has an edge over other cities in the race to become the second capital
