Partymen want cremation on Congress grounds

CHENNAI, AUG. 30. The TMC men want their party leader, Mr. G.K. Moopanar, cremated on the Congress grounds at Teynampet and a memorial erected there. The party has sought the permission of the family of the departed leader and the State Government to cremate Moopanar's mortal remains on the Congress grounds, the TMC spokesman, Mr. B. Gnanadesikan, told The Hindu. ``As the Congress grounds belongs to the TNCC' Trust, of which Mr. Moopanar was a trustee, the Government is likely to grant permission,'' Mr.Gnanadesikan said.

In the evening, the Chennai Police Commissioner, Mr. K. Muthukaruppan, inspected the site on the Congress grounds.
