Chennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K. Stalin said on Saturday February 5 the social reforms advocated by Vaishnavite saint Ramanujar are close to DMK government’s heart.

Thanking Tridandi Chinna Srimannarayana Ramanuja Jeeyar Swami for inviting him for the consecration of the Golden Ramanujar statue, Stalin also pointed out that late Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi had scripted the tele-serial on the seer’s life and times.

Stalin said: “The social reforms advocated by Ramanujar are close to our hearts too. In one of our reformist approaches, my government appointed archakas (priests) in temples from all castes and ensured equality for all in performing pujas in the sanctum sanctorum of the temples in Tamil Nadu.”

“I whole-heartedly wish the function a grand success and may this ‘Statue of Equality’ remain as the symbol of national integration,” Stalin said.

The ‘Statue of Equality’ is to commemorate the 1000th birth anniversary of the Vaishnavite saint in Hyderabad.
