It is shocking to know Thiruvalluvar statue which has been taken to Uttarakhand to install in bank of Ganga is now kept abandoned at Haridwar. The 12 feet statue of Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar who had contributed world ethics as Thirukkural is taken to Haridwar in Uttarakhand. The authorities had failed to install in the appropriate place when the group opposed to install the saint poet statue there.
Several Tamil Nadu political leaders expressed shocked over this and urged government to take appropriate steps. Chief Minister J Jayalalitha had written letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding this issue yesterday. She had stated 'It is learnt that the Thiruvalluvar statue is now lying in the Dam Kothi Guest House, Haridwar, in an abandoned condition. The visuals of the statue in this condition beamed on telivision screens is causing outrage in Tamil Nadu. I request you to kindly take up this matter with the Government of Uttarakhand urgently and to ensure that the statue of Thiruvalluvar is treated with due respect and is installed at an appropriate location at the earliest.'
Thiruvalluvar Ganga Payanam was started on 18 June 2016 at Kanyakumari. It was flagged of from Chennai from 22 June 2016 to start its journey to Haridwar. With all support of Samajwadi and BJP leaders it was happened to sent Thiruvalluvar statue to the northern state said Tamil Nadu Chief Minister.
Today Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat had given reply about this issue. He said people of Uttarakhand have immense respect to the saint poet and he had been ordered collector of the district to take immediate action to install the statue in the appropriate place with all respect. The problem arose when the authorities not confirmed the place of installation. He assured within one week the statue will be installed.
