Chennai, Tamil Nadu News: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin Wednesday inaugurated the ‘Central Square’ facility which is located near to Puratchi Thalaivar Dr. M.G. Ramachandran Central Railway Station and aims to act as a transport hub. For commuters who land at the railway station, many transport options including suburban trains, MRTS services, Metro trains and buses are available. These hubs are now interconnected and important buildings including the Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital, Victoria Hall and Ripon Buildings are linked with these subways.

Tamil Nadu Transport Minister R S Rajakannappan was stripped of his portfolio on Tuesday, two days after he allegedly harassed a Dalit officer in his constituency Ramanathapuram. Rajakannappan’s Transport portfolio has been allocated to S S Sivasankar, Raj Bhavan said in a press release, in what could be termed the first Cabinet reshuffle after Chief Minister M K Stalin came to power in May 2021.

Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu BJP chief K Annamalai dared the ruling DMK to arrest him “within six hours” on Tuesday from his party office, on charges made by DMK’s organisational secretary that Annamalai had allegedly blackmailed former AIADMK ministers. “I will be here in the office. Arrest me if you have proof, failing which people will realise that this is another of your lie,” he said. In other news, after returning from a four-day trip to Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin said the state government has inked deals worth Rs 6,100 crore with leading investors which will generate employment opportunities for 14,700 people back home. Stalin also inaugurated Amazon India’s new office in the World Trade Centre at Perungudi in Chennai.
