BJP state unit president Tamizhisai Sounderrajan said the Jayalalithaa government should put in as much efforts in creating conducive atmosphere for investors, as much it did in the conduct of GIM, which concluded here yesterday.

"Despite criticism (from some political parties), having conducted (GIM) in an amazing way is welcome," she said in a statement adding it was heartening to see more than expected levels of investments of Rs 2.42 lakh crore being committed, with the southern parts attracting a significant chunk. "Prime Minister Narendra Modi creating that confidence among investors by visiting global countries is also a reason for investors coming (to India and Tamil Nadu) with so much of confidence," she added.

In an apparent reference to the previous Congress-led UPA government, she said there was an 'accusation' that the then Central government did not cooperate if a ruling party in a state was in Opposition.

"However, the Modi government has a policy of jointly working with a state government, even if ruled by an Opposition party, in the interest of the people and that is why PM Modi met Tamil Nadu Chief Minister (Jayalalithaa) last month here," she cited.
