The Central Government has rejected the Tamil Nadu decorative vehicle participating in the Republic Day parade in Delhi. In South India, only the decorative vehicles of the state of Karnataka have been approved by the Central Government as the decorative vehicles of the states including Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Telangana, and Andhra Pradesh have been rejected.
Republic Day is celebrated annually on January 26th. A parade will be held to mark the occasion. It will feature decorative vehicles on behalf of the respective states to illustrate the specialities of each state in India. It will feature decorative vehicles depicting the martyrs of the freedom struggle and their struggles. Thirty-six states had sent models for this decorative vehicle.
Of these, only models from 12 states have been taken and approved. A decorative vehicle model was sent on behalf of the Government of Tamil Nadu for the Republic Day celebrations. It featured photographs of freedom fighters martyrs Veeramangai Velunacharyar, Kappalottiya Thamizhan V.O.C and Bharathiar, who nurtured a sense of liberation.
The Central Government has rejected the vehicles provided on behalf of Tamil Nadu. They said they only knew Bharathiyar in the models in the decorative vehicles, and they did not know the leaders like V.O.C, Velunacharya. According to sources, the government has said that it will only accept vehicles carrying the most famous freedom fighters.
Following Kerala and West Bengal, the decorative vehicles that were to participate on behalf of the Government of Tamil Nadu have been rejected in the Republic Day parade to be held in Delhi. It is to note that the rehearsals for the Republic Day parade will be held daily from 9 am to 12 noon on January 17, 18, 20 and 21.
In this situation, DMK MP Kanimozhi has condemned the Central Government for rejecting the Tamil Nadu decorative vehicle designed for the Republic Day celebrations.
Kanimozhi tweeted, "The action of the Central Government in rejecting the decorative vehicle of Tamil Nadu designed for the Republic Day celebrations is highly objectionable. The sacrifices of Veeramangai Velunachchiar, the VOC and Bharathiar are present in the lives of every Tamil people."
In my letter to Hon'ble Prime Minister Thiru @NarendraModi, I've requested his urgent intervention to arrange to include the tableau of Tamil Nadu as this is a matter of grave concern to the State of Tamil Nadu and its people. pic.twitter.com/0byXlYStCc— M.K.Stalin (@mkstalin) January 17, 2022
