Lotus rangoli in TN temple defaced; BJP protests

Chennai: The BJP flayed the Tamilnadu officials for defacing the lotus rangolis drawn at the Srivilliputhur Sri Andal temple located in Virudhunagar district in view of the Model Code of Conduct.

BJP Tamil Nadu chief Tamilisai Soundararajan condemned the act. “The public had drawn lotus in which Goddess Mahalakshmi is seated out of devotion and it was not done for elections,” she stated. She further questioned whether the officials would remove the hand of the deity since it was the symbol of the Congress party or conceal the rising sun as it is the DMK’s symbol.
