It is now MGR bus stand at Mattuthavani

Changed, at last: As announced by Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami, Mattuthavani integrated bus stand in Madurai has been renamed MGR bus stand.  

With Madurai Corporation installing a new name board, Mattuthavani integrated bus stand formally became M.G.R. bus stand on Tuesday.

Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami had announced during the birth centenary celebration of former Chief Minister M.G. Ramachandran in Madurai that the bus stand would be named after the late leader.

However, the change did not come into effect even after a few months of the announcement.

Madurai North MLA V.V. Rajan Chellappa had made an appeal through the media to implement the name change at the earliest. A government order for changing the name was passed recently, following which the Municipal Corporation installed the new name board.
