New Delhi,[India] Dec.6 : The Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) on Tuesday said it was deeply saddened by the demise of Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa.
In a statement, FICCI President Harshavardhan Neotia said, "Ms Jayalalithaa was an extraordinary political leader who made relentless efforts for the economic progress of the Tamil Nadu and single-handedly conceptualised the vision document Vision 2023 Tamil Nadu ("Vision 2023"), setting the plan for infrastructure development for the state.
Her connect with the people, concern for wellbeing of the poor, the women (and) marginalized will always be a source of inspiration and be cherished for years.
"We share our deepest condolences with her family and the people of Tamil Nadu. Selvi Jayalalithaa was a visionary leader and will continue to inspire us in Indian industry. Her absence in the Indian polity will create a void that would be very difficult to fill," Neotia added.
