  1. Respected Sir,
    Greetings of the day & election campaign. I am Subramaniyan native of Thanjavur. My mother is a native of Aranthagi & has a great memories of Sir GK Moopanar visiting them.
    Very happy to hear that Auto symbol has been allocated to TMC.

    Very eager to see you campaigning in Thanjavur.
    Wish you all the best for the victory.

    Best Regards,
    Subramaniyan Thiagarajan
