 Opposition leaders meanwhile reiterated their condemnation of the move. DMK working president Stalin said Jayalalithaa had been proven guilty and was the prime accused in the disproportionate assets case. Officials said a four-member committee led by PWD engineer-in-chief, comprising members from school of architecture, Anna University and CMDA zeroed in on the design after global competitive bidding.  With IIT Madras being chosen as consultant, the memorial would be built on a par with international standards.

The complex spread over 9.09acres will be revamped with four pavilions on the granite footpath. About 110m-long covered footpath at the entrance will have solar panels to generate power.
