The Leader of the Opposition, S.Thavarasa had earlier contributed Rs.7,000/= towards “Muliwaikkal Commemoration” expenditures. However he later wanted his money back in an NPC sitting, as due importance had not been given to him at the Commemoration.
Hearing this, the Eastern University students collected 1/= each , in the name of “Blood Money”, from Eastern people to pay back the money.
The students had brought the money to the Council, to be handed over to S.Thavarasa. However the Leader of the house had refused to receive it. Later the students met the CM and tried to hand over the money to the CM.
The CM had indicated that the matter had been solved in the recent sitting and hence he is not going to the receive the money.
Finally, the students had hung the “Blood Money” at the gate of Thavarasa’s house before returning.
