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.
If Tamil Nadu has to march towards development and sab ka vikas, Dravidian brand politics of hatred, negativity, anti-Hindu, anti-Hindi, anti-God must end.
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.
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.

The present generation of Tamil Nadu must know the vision and value system that was promoted by Kamaraj.
