No to new secretariat at Kotturpuram

The DMK regime has decided it would return 22.16 acres of land belonging to Anna University, thus killing former chief minister J. Jayalithaa’s dream to built a new secretariat in Kotturpuram.

The much-hyped plan to build a new secretariat was proposed by the previous AIADMK government to house the government offices. The present secretariat complex inside Fort St. George is old and Amma had claimed that the buildings were structurally defective.
Meanwhile, Anna University has said it would spend up to Rs 300 crore creating new infrastructure after the land is returned. A GO to this effect is expected soon.
About 43 acres of prime land were acquired for the new secretariat. About 21 acres of this land belongs to the Madras University.
