Madras Harbour - 1983

Sri MGR Year 100, 2nd September, Saturday

One of my client Mr.Bose who was a Burma repatriate and who worked and retired as Superintendent in Madras Port Trust had given me some images relating to the inaugural ceremony of new container berth at the cost of 40 Crores (in 1983) attended by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR.

The function was held on 18th December 1983. Recently while going through my scan collection I happened to see the above news. I have already published the colour images of the function 8 years before, the link is given separately.


In the function Prime Minister inaugurated the new container berth and Chief Minister MGR launched new Fishing Harbour on the north side of the port. As per protocol MGR spoke before Indira Gandhi, below is the speech given by MGR in the function.
