The Madurai Corporation will take efforts to lodge a police complaint against Union Minister M.K. Alagiri for “land-grabbing” to construct Dhaya Cyber Park, owned by his family members, Mayor V. V. Rajan Chellappa said on Wednesday.

During question hour at the Corporation Council meeting here, party's zone (4) chairperson P. Salaimuthu raised the issue of the multi-storey cyber park on 120 Feet Road opposite the Mattuthavani integrated bus stand.

Asked whether the construction of the building, in close proximity to a cremation yard, violated rules, City Town Planning Officer P. Rakkappan said the cyber park had violated rules.

Mr. Salaimuthu wondered how officials approved the building plan. He pointed out that the multi-storey building had encroached upon eight cents of Corporation land.

Mr. Salaimuthu sought a clarification from officials whether it did not amount to land-grabbing if the plan for the building had claimed that the entire site belonged to the applicant. Corporation Commissioner (in-charge), N. Arumuga Nainar answered in the affirmative.
