When asked whether Murugan met the CM seeking his nod for the Vel Yatra planned by the BJP on November 6, Murugan said that the meeting was only to thank the Chief Minister for the reservation bill and nothing to do with politics.

To a query that the VCK and the Left parties have demanded the state to ban the Vel Yatra, Murugan said that the rally will commence as per the plan on November 6. We will distribute free N95 masks during the rally and register our protest against the DMK and the Karuppur Koottam. The BJP on Tuesday also lodged a fresh complaint with the DGP office seeking the arrest of those behind Karuppar Koottam.
