Thevar Jayanthi passes off peacefully at Pasumpon

Offering tributes at the samadhi of Muthuramalinga Thevar at Pasumpon village, marking his 113th Jayanthi and 58th Guru Puja on Friday, Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami said after M.G. Ramachandran became Chief Minister, Thevar Jayanthi was being conducted as a function by the State government.

In a brief interaction with mediapersons, he said the AIADMK had recognised the services of Muthuramalinga Thevar, who had fought along with leaders like Subash Chandra Bose against the British. As a parliamentarian and member of the Legislative Assembly, too, his contributions were praiseworthy.
