Giving free cycles as part of one-time puja scheme in a temple is okay, but building a temple is not okay for the rulers of Tamilnadu!
Readers might wonder what a cycle has to do with temple puja. But that is the brain child of our Chief minister Mr Karunanidhi who thinks that by donating a free cycle to the priests, they can come on time to the temple to conduct the one- time pooja. This facility was extended to priests of the temples where only one- time puja (oru - kaala poojai) is being done. A person of Karunanidhi's mental make-up can not think how the crores of money spent on the cycles (all cycles painted yellow, his lucky colour) could have been diverted to conduct the puja for the 2nd time also in those temples. This much is what he knows about temples and how they must be taken care of.
So it is not surprising to expect this man to reprehend his MP for signing a memorandum for building Ram Temple at Ayodhya. Already the name, Ram is allergic to him. He is the exact opposite of whatever Ram stands for! Even after the court verdict on the historicity of Ram and his Janmasthaan, this man can not accpet a temple at Janmasthaan. Will he behave the same if the temple in question is that of Christians and Muslims? It is high time that he is thrown out of power and dumped for ever.

Muslim organisations have taken strong exception to Ms Davidson’s open support to the mandir movement.
Though the party welcomed the Ayodhya verdict initially, DMK president M.Karunanidhi later criticised the judgment by saying that the court confirmed that the disputed land was the birthplace of Rama, when "Tamils have yet to find out details about the death of King Rajaraja, his tomb, or his memorial although the great king lived just 1,000 years ago." "The Aryan civilisation which tried to topple the Dravidian race has acted vigorously to cultivate superstition among people," he said.
