He further said that he will plan to attract more investments, accelerate job creation, and deliver growth at a pace that will re-establish Tamil Nadu as a leading state in IT.
“I hope my own experience in establishing and managing a pioneering Global Capability Centre 15 years ago, and the connectivity with the IT and ITES Industry gained during my professional career, will enrich my efforts in this new role,” he added.
MP Saminathan, the Minister of Information and Publicity, has been additionally allotted the Tamil Official Language and Tamil Culture, Archaeology.
Dravida Munnetra Kazhgam (DMK) legislator TRB Rajaa was sworn in as a Minister in the Tamil Nadu Cabinet this morning.
Governor RN Ravi administered the oaths of office and secrecy to the Mannargudi MLA, Rajaa at a ceremony in the Raj Bhavan in Chennai attended by Chief Minister M K Stalin and others. Rajaa has been allocated the Industries portfolio.
The three-time MLA from Mannargudi. He was earlier appointed the DMK’s NRI wing secretary and later the IT wing secretary.

I am sure he will accelerate the progress already made and deliver new records in his tenure.” (ANI)
