It appears that the Madurai – Trichy highway corridor is going to be big in commerce and goods movement. The swiftness with which the action was taken to replace / relocate the residents in Khaja Nagar so that the critical piece of the road could be constructed stands evidence to that. The residents were taken on a bus trip to Nagamangalam where 100 constructed houses are ready to be occupied and more could be constructed soon.But the Khaja nagar residents did not like that location and hence expressed displeasure / disagreement and insisted that they want home sites. After Mr Nehru’ s dialogue with them , they agreed to “accept” the home site pattas in Suriyur and they are likely to get free home sites from the government so that the highway can come up.

This was a swift resolution to a very sensitive issue.
