Periyar statue desecrated at Chengalpet district of Tamilnadu, amidst the controversy over Rajinikanth's speech on Periyar.

On the 50th anniversary event of Tamil magazine Thuglak, on January 14, Rajinikanth had reportedly said that at a rally in 1971 led by late Periyar idols of Lord Ram and Sita were taken out without any clothes on them and that the deities also featured a garland of sandals.

While speaking at 'Yescon 2020', Haasan said he had also urged the industry to talk to the government about the GST but to no avail.

The action-drama is Rajinikanth's 167th film 'Darbar' and fans have prayed in the temple for the movie as well as for the actor's victory in the upcoming legislative election.

The comments came a day after he said that his friendship with Rajinikanth is 44-year-old and hinted at joining hands with him for politics.

This is the second time Perarivalan will be out on parole. In 2017, he was released for 30 days which was extended by another 30 days on his mother Arpudhammal's request.

The DMK passed resolutions to demand a permanent solution for water scarcity in the state, conducting local body elections immediately, finishing river linking projects. It also condemned the arrest of politicians in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Pilliyarpatti police have filed a case in regard to vandalisation of statue and further investigation is underway.

"All education institutes will remain closed in the Ramanathapuram district following heavy rains lashing across the district," said Veeraragavarav, District Collector, Ramanathapuram.
