TIRUNELVELI: A two-member committee from Tamil Nadu Urban Development Fund on Friday visited the Nehru Open Auditorium at Palayamkottai, the proposed site for the construction of a multipurpose auditorium, and Ilanthaikulam on the A.R. Line Road for establishing a theme park.
After the Tirunelveli Corporation planned to establish a theme park at Ilanthaikulam at the cost of Rs. 1 crore and also a multipurpose hall at Nehru Open Auditorium, a team led by Mayor A.L. Subramanian and the zonal chairpersons met Deputy Chief Minister M.K. Stalin at Fort St. George on August 2 and submitted a memorandum in this connection.
Since both the projects are likely to come up in Palayamkottai Zone, its chairman Suba. Seetharaman also submitted a separate petition to Mr. Stalin with similar plea and appealed to him to sanction both the works soon.
Against this backdrop, Assistant Vice-President (Projects) of Tamil Nadu Urban Development Fund R. Gayathri and its advisor S. Viswanathan inspected the sites – Nehru Open Auditorium having an extent of 1.50 acre near Centenary Hall at Palayamkottai and Ilanthaikulam on the A.R. Line Road.
“The officials said that Mr. Stalin wants to establish an amusement park at Ilanthaikulam, similar to Adyar Park in Chennai. We hope that administrative sanction would be given soon,” Mr. Seetharaman said.
The team is likely to submit its report to Mr. Stalin within a day or two and the final decision will be taken based on this report.
