Today holiday in Puducherry

Special Correspondent

PUDUCHERRY: The territorial government on Sunday announced that Monday had been declared holiday for all government offices and educational institutions on account of the birth centenary of former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu C.N. Annadurai.

The holiday would also be applicable to the establishments under the government, an official release said, adding that it would not come under the purview of the Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881.

The government had declared holiday for Anna’s birth centenary as it had done earlier to mark the birth centenary of Kamaraj, a release issued by the Chief Minister’s Office said.

Official sources said that the Chief Minister, the Speaker, Ministers, the Deputy Speaker, legislators and the Chairperson of the Puducherry Municipality would garland the statue of Annadurai in the town.

The DMK has decided to organise functions in all 30 Assembly segments in the Union Territory throughout the year as part of the birth centenary celebrations.

The Puducherry unit of the AIADMK has asked the party cadres and its front organisations to participate in a procession from the party headquarters to the statue of Annadurai.

The AIADMK has also decided to hold functions in different parts of the Union Territory to distribute assistance to the needy.

In a message released on the eve of the birth centenary, Chief Minister V.Vaithilingam said Annadurai, who believed that God could be seen in the smiles of the poor, had proved that a society could achieve one success after another if it upheld duty, dignity and discipline.

“We take a vow on this occasion that our government, under the guidance of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and as per the advice of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi, will strive to protect the interest of the poor and downtrodden,” he said.
