Achievements of people of Tamil Nadu have been praiseworthy: TN Governor

Chennai, Feb 20 (UNI) Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit said that the Tamil Nadu foundation with the liberal contribution of its members and their families, can boast of improving the lives of more than 2 lakh people covered under 600 projects implemented in the last 4 decades in Tamil Nadu.
Delivering his address at Annual Conference of Tamil Nadu Foundation here on Wednesday, he said the achievements of the people of Tamil Nadu have been praiseworthy and unparallel all through the ages.
The Governor said one hears of the Chola Kings extending their domination in Sri Lanka, Indonesia and many other parts of South East Asia. Therefore it should come as no surprise for any one to know that Tamilians were among the early settlers in Singapore and Malaysia. I am sure that all of you know about the Mariyamman temple and the predominant Tamil population in little India in Singapore.
