  • tags: no_tag

    • Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy has threatened to launch an agitation if the Tamil Nadu Government further delayed its consent to name the city airport after freedom fighter Pasumpon Muthuramalinga Thevar.
    • "We follow the same policy of Thevar -- that nationalism and spiritualism are two eyes of a man. Thevar had national
      outlook,and broke the back of the British in Tamil Nadu when the so called Dravidian parties were backing the Raj. Now it is for the congress Government to decide whether to name the airport after a freedom fighter or not, " he said.
