The Hindu - - TAMIL NADU - Spe­cial Cor­re­spon­dent

AIADMK leader and Min­is­ter of Tamil lan­guage and Cul­ture K. Pan­di­ara­jan on Satur­day said poli­cies of the gov­ern­ment can have im­mense dis­rup­tive power.

Mr. Pan­di­ara­jan was speak­ing at the two-day An­nual Global Con­ven­tion of En­tre­pre­neur Cafe, be­ing hosted by the Great Lakes In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment.

The theme of the con­fer­ence is ‘Dis­rup­tive En­trepreneur­ship in Amaz­ing In­dia’. The de­ci­sion by former Chief Min­is­ter K. Ka­ma­raj to open 15,000 schools drove up gross en­rol­ment ra­tio to 80% in the State even as the na­tional av­er­age was 30%, he re­called. At the in­au­gu­ral cer­e­mony, Chair­man of Sun­daram Fas­ten­ers Limited Suresh Kr­ishna, talked of the duty of en­trepreneurs to take care of their labour force.

‘Stan­dard of liv­ing’

“If we are not here to el­e­vate the stan­dard of liv­ing of our citizens, what are we do­ing,” Mr. Kr­ishna asked.

He said job cre­ation was a cru­cial com­po­nent of en­trepreneur­ship, which in­cluded jobs in the lower part of the pyra­mid.

Bala V. Balachan­dran, founder and chair­man of the in­sti­tute, R. Ra­manan, Di­rec­tor of the Atal In­no­va­tion Mis­sion and Dhar­men­dra Pratap Ya­dav, prin­ci­pal sec­re­tary, MSME were among the speak­ers.
