VV Mineral Mining Stays Positive Despite Allegations
VV Mineral Mining and its founder S Vaikundarajan have been facing a lot of heat over the illegal beach sand mining scam. In another twist, Judge Michael Cunha stated 32 benami companies through Jayalalitha amassed huge assets. One company, Riverway Agro Products Pvt Ltd, has been accused of helping Jayalalitha with 1190 acres of land in Thirunelveli districts of Tamil Nadu.

Allegations were quickly made against VV Mineral Vaikundarajan connecting him to the company. Meanwhile, the judge has ordered for confiscation of all land.

When the allegations of illegal beach mining began to surface, the State Government set up an investigating team to probe the matter. IAS office Ashish Kumar was given the marching order during his investigating stint. Once again, fingers were pointed at S Vaikundarajan for using political influence in his favour. An enquiry committee headed by Gagandeep Singh Bedi was set up following this controversy.

VV Mineral Vaikundarajan continued to maintain that company has been operating within
legal boundaries for over 20 years now. He has openly shown his support to the investigating committee and called the allegations as a ploy by his business competitors to defame the company.

How much truth do these allegations hold are yet to be proven as no concrete proof has been brought forth as yet.
