Chennai, March 15 (BPNS)
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K. Stalin on Tuesday announced that the state government would establish a mega book park in the state and that the land for the same is being identified. He was addressing a programme at Kalaivnar Aragam in Chennai after presenting the state government awards to Tamil scholars and social workers.
Stalin said that his late father, former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, M. Karunanidhi had conceived the idea of a mega book park but due to several reasons it did not materialize. He said that the mega book park would be a platform for booksellers, printers, publishers, authors, and writers.
The Chief Minister said that globally renowned book publishers would establish their units in the mega book park.
He said that the book park would provide a platform for exchanging ideas and will be an arena for cultural and literary discussions in the future. He said that almost all the new books will be present in the park and that the government would extend all the necessary support for the park by all means.
