MADURAI: Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) MLA Dr P Saravanan along with other party leaders from Madurai filed a complaint with the District Collector, protesting against the installation of a statue of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in KK Nagar area.
The DMK said that setting up the statue in the vicinity of the district court will cause heavy traffic congestion in the area.
The party also warned that it will move the court if the Collector did not take appropriate action.
It is significant to mention that there is already a statue of MG Ramachandran (MGR) in the Madurai KK Nagar area, where the construction of the statue of Jayalalithaa is currently underway. The work has been going on for three months.
Today is the former Chief Minister Jayalalitha's Memorial Day.
