Prime Minister Manmohan Singh greeted past and present members of the Tamil Nadu Assembly on the occasion of the diamond jubilee celebrations.
“A legislative assembly is the epicentre of democratic values and constitutional commitment. The Tamil Nadu legislature has been home to some of our greatest political leaders. I salute the memory of C Rajagopalachari, K Kamaraj, M Bhaktavatsalam, C N Annadurai and M G Ramachandran. On this occasion, I pay my tributes to the great men and women who have brought distinction and honour to the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly,” Singh said.
