Sivagnanams’s Tamilarasu Kalagam demanded the name change and invoked the contributions of Sankaralinga Nadar when CN Annadurai came to power in 1967 and that is how the name change happened.
A simple reality check of Tamil Nadu politics would reveal that neither EVR nor DMK has done anything substantial for socially challenged people.
EV Ramasamy Naicker (EVR) is portrayed as ‘above God’ image by his so called disciples and the splinter political party that has established Dravidian dynasty and family rule in Tamil Nadu.
None of them wants the other to win more. So while they will show up together, they will play spoiler in the background.
It appears EVR had compromised his ideologies for personal benefits at least at once and that was how he defeated Ramalinga Chettiyar in Erode and worked for BV Narasimha Iyer and made him victorious.
Though it did not matter in 2014, Tamil Nadu would turn out to be a crucial state for BJP to make up for potential losses in UP due to a the unholy alliance between the SP and BSP.
Family politics and politics of negativity, hatred, anti-God, anti-Hindu, anti-Hindi, anti-Brahmin etc., initiated by Dravidian brand politics will do nothing to the state.
