A felicitation function felicitating Sri T.M.Soundararajan was arranged by DMK Party's VIP Sri M.K.Alagiri on 6th August 2008 at Tamukkam Grounds, Madurai around 6 pm.
Chief Minister Dr.M.Karunanidhi gave a gift cheque of Rs. 5 Lakhs.
This is an unique gesture on the part of Sri M.K.Alagiri, son of the Chief Minister. People could not find out the motive behind this. It is doubtful that because of this felicitation to Sri T.M.Soundararajan, people belonging to Sourashtra community will vote for DMK candidates.
Perhaps, if they select Sourashtra candidate for Madurai Constituency, there is a slight possibility of support by Sourashtra Community. It is to be seen whether they select a Sourashtra Candidate for Madurai Constituency in the ensuing General Elections.
