The design of the floats, that would form part of the procession to be taken out during the World Classical Tamil Conference to be held in Coimbatore in June, would be finalised in consultation with Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi, Kanimozhi, MP, said here on Sunday.
Ms. Kanimozhi inspected some of the miniature models of floats brought here today. K. N. Nehru, Transport Minister and Chairman of the conference procession committee, Thangam Thennarasu, Minister for School Education, N. Selvaraj, Forest Minister, C. Kamaraj, Director, Information and Public Relations, and T. Soundiah, Collector, accompanied Ms. Kanimozhi.
The floats would depict scenes from Tamil literature and life and would highlight the theme, "pirapokkum ella uyirukkum" (all are equal by birth). "We have commenced the process of exploring various designs and topics. Maruthu and other artists are designing the floats. There will about 50 to 60 floats in the procession," said Ms. Kanimozhi.
