A plea has been filed before the Madras high court seeking to stop construction work on a multipurpose convention centre carried out under Smart City project at Tamukkam ground in Madurai.
A division bench of justice M Sathyanarayanan and justice P Rajamanickam sought response from the Madurai Corporation while hearing a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by C Nethaji Karthikeyan, founder of Madurai based NGO Ilam Kaalaigal Trust. The petitioner stated that Tamukkam ground is one of the historical sites in Madurai. It was created during Nayak kingdomand was used for display of royal entertainment events. The ground, which extends to nearly 9.68 acres is maintained by the corporation.
Since the residents are unhappy about the transformation of the Tamukkam ground, he moved the high court.
