Short #Thread on #RajivGandhi - #Kalaignar :
The best #government #hospital in Tamilnadu, the #GGH/#MMC was renamed after #RajivGandhi because Rajiv's body was brought there. This created heart burn among #DMK cadre because RG was despised in #DMK. (2)
One lower - level functionary wrote to @arivalayam, the party HQ, demanding renaming #Royapettah Hospital after #SilkSmita. (She was brought dead to this hospital). There was no response. Then, he got a friend to write to Chief Minister's Office. Kalaignar saw the letter. (3)
The #CMO (not Kalaignar) responded thus (paraphrasing) : If we name a place after a person who has committed suicide, it will set a wrong precedent!
(The person who wrote the first letter is still an organiser at the lower level. Kalaignar knew who wrote it too)
