The statue of Pandaravannian erected at Mallavi, Mullaitheevu, was declared open yesterday amidst conflicting ideas.
The statue erected under the specific grant of TNA MP, Sivamohan was criticized by the area youth for deformation. But the MP unilaterally decided to open the statue without taking the opposition of the youth in to consideration. When he tried to open the statue with the help of the police, the youth opposed the move.
However after pacifying the youth the statue was declared open by him.
When delivering his Chief Guest’s speech he however, gave an explanation saying the design was internet assisted.
