THE COST OF FREE­DOM

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Ra­jya Sabha MP Vas­an­thi Stan­ley thought she was be­ing kind to Kan­i­mozhi when she prayed for her re­lease at the Vaza­kkatheeswarar tem­ple near Chen­nai. But on Novem­ber 11, the next day, party spokesper­son and MP T.K.S. Elan­go­van called it a uni­lat­eral act. “This uni­lat­eral act by Vas­an­thi Stan­ley did not have the party head­quar­ters’ con­sent. We like to clar­ify that the party is not con­nected to it in any way.” The state­ment did not go down very well with Kan­i­mozhi’s mother Ra­jathi Am­mal who has been mak­ing high pro­file tem­ple vis­its of her own.
