New secretariat complex to hospital in chennai

Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Friday announced that the new Secretariat complex, presently not in use, would house a super multi-specialty hospital on a part with All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). The new hospital in the city would cater to the needs of the poor and downtrodden, besides housing a new medical college.

She said the hospital will come up in A wing of the complex measuring 97,829 sq. metres.

The government will set up a new medical college in the buildings coming up in the B block, Jayalalithaa said.

Jayalalithaa reiterated her government's decision not to shift the assembly and secretariat to the new complex as it was not sufficient enough to house all the Tamil Nadu government departments.

The AIADMK government has decided to function out of Fort St.George and appointed a one-man committee to probe allegations of wasteful expenditure and poor quality construction in the new assembly and secretariat complex.
