VV Mineral Vaikundarajan is not known to be a media person and has always preferred to keep a low profile. Under his tutelage, the company has grown many-fold. However, recently the company has found itself surrounded in a controversy. VV Mineral Mining has been accused of illegal sand mining while concerns have been raised against VV Mineral Vaikundarajan for using his political connections to influence the system.
District Attorney Ashwin Kumar and ex-IAS officer V Sundaram have been vocal in their allegations. In the letter written by the latter, VV Mineral Vaiundarajan is accused of looting Rs. 96,000 crore.
