Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Parliamentarian M A Sumanthiran has challenged the 65000 housing project of the Government before the Supreme Court. He has alleged that the project has also violated the tender procedure and has been given for a higher cost.
He has also sought a stay order on the project to be carried out by Arcelor Mittal Construction France. The TNA has strongly opposed the housing project in the North and East proposed by Ministry of Resettlement saying it does not meet the needs of the people. TNA has criticized that they are not houses but sheds unsuitable for living.
