Chennai Corporation Decides to Welcome Swamigal
A resolution was passed by the Chennai Corporation before Swamigal’s visit to Chennai, to offer a welcoming plaque on behalf of the people of Chennai and three hundred rupees was budgeted for this. When Sir A.Ramaswamy Mudaliar proposed this resolution, he announced that this was indeed the first time such a welcome was being accorded to a religious leader on behalf of the Corporation. However, Swamigal was an honorable person who had the respect and esteem of not just Hindus, but people of all other religions also. The proposal was passed unanimously in the Corporation. Still, Swamigal sent his apologies that he would not be able to come to the Corporation building and accept this plaque per official protocol, but instead sent mutt representatives for the same.
