Sir, the problems that plague the town are the availability of round the clock power, good roads, waste disposal - sewage system and availability of better housing facilities. Civic issues need to be tackled aggressively, a clean city will do wonders for a potential new age business - textile hub.
The hospitality sector also needs to be encouraged with increase in rooms & improvement in facilities.
Internet - wifi connectivity should also be enhanced.
Transport - traffic regulation is needed

Sir, in recent times there has also been a keen interest in the education enterprise, which have seen a great many school exam toppers from institutions based in these parts. This model, though with occasional complaints, needs to be strengthened as many "non-city" children get an opportunity to compete at the highest levels. This requires more guidelines & better supervision, and can become a model scheme like the one in Bihar - preparing students for IIT.

Sir, Erode has been a business - textile centre for long. Though the textile industry has faced some setbacks, they have always bounced back, have been up to date. They generate employment, bring in investment & forex. This should be the focus, as it can bring about improvement in lives of the common man. Industry however, requires better & continuous power, IT connectivity, design houses, e-auction / e-retail hubs, training centers, improved road & rail connectivity.
