Move to change Tamil New Year’s Day flayed

MADURAI: The Viswa Hindu Parishad (VHP) objected to the State Government’s decision to declare the first day of ‘Thai’ as Tamil New Year’s day, said its State general secretary R.S. Narayanaswamy, here on Sunday.

Briefing presspersons at the end of the two-day meeting of the State executive committee, he said that the Government should withdraw its decision. If not, the VHP would stage demonstration in all district headquarters on February 20. The Government, he said, had no right to change the beginning of the Tamil year, which was being followed by millions of Tamils for ages, for its own reasons. The executive committee had also urged the Government not only to protect Ramar Bridge but also declare it a heritage monument, he said. Expressing concern over the treatment meted out to Hindus in Malaysia, he said that it was time the Centre took note of it and snapped all business ties with that nation if it continued.
