Nadigar Sangam gets go-ahead for building

The decks have been cleared for the proposed construction of a building for the Nadigar Sangam in T. Nagar, with the Madras High Court on Tuesday vacating its earlier order directing the office-bearers to maintain status quo on the construction. Last May, K.M. Srirangan and R. Annamalai, residents of T. Nagar, filed a writ petition alleging that the Nadigar Sangam Charitable Trust and the South Indian Artistes Association had encroached upon a 33-foot public road connecting Habibullah Road and Prakasam Street.
