Puratchi Thalaivar Dr MGR Perunthu Nilayam

Sri MGR Year 101, 20th October, Saturday

The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister E.Palanisamy during  Puratchi Thalaivar’s 100th year valedictory function announced that the Chennai Mofussil Bus Terminus will be named as “Puratchi Thalaivar Dr.MGR Perunthu Nilayam”.

The DMK chief Stalin was against such a move and he told to media persons that it is like a person naming someone else’s child and continued as his party DMK was instrumental in the construction of the bus terminus.

I was astonished as my house was near to Koyambedu, in those days when I was in 7th standard I came to know that the fruit market and bus stand will be shifted from Broadway to Koyambedu and father used to tell me that the traffic will be heavier and I should be careful in crossing the road. I still remember that. Unfortunately no ministers or ADMK party members objected to Stalin’s unauthenticated baseless allegation.

Later that day, the then Chennai Mayor Saidai Duraisamy countered Stalin’s statement with authenticated proof from the Government files.

Below is the reply of Saidai Duraisamy to Stalin.

Vaiko Shares His Thoughts On MGR

Sri MGR Year 101, 5th October, Friday

Caution : See this video privately

The General Secretary of MDMK had conducted our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR’s Centenary last year. I had the chance to see the video of his speech, quoting MGR’s unique character, his movies, his politics, how he helped others etc.

The 39 minute below video will make us shed tears for some instances he had quoted.  Vaiko had spoken the last 10 minutes extensively about MGR’s help to Tamil Elam movement.



The above video was uploaded by Tamil Galatta in Youtube.
