Dravida Kazhagam (DK) president K Veeramani saved my life in prison during difficult times, said Chief Minister MK Stalin on Friday. Stalin took part in the 90th birth anniversary celebration of the political leader that took place at Kalaivanar hall in the city. Stalin was bestowed with the K veeramani award for social justice from Periyar Pannattu Amaippu in recognition of his commitment and leadership in the practice of the Dravidian model.

Speaking on the occasion, Stalin said, “Even at this age, he is writing statements for the welfare of the public and recently he wrote a letter criticizing Governor RN Ravi for not granting assent to the bill to ban online gambling.

 I heard he was told that it could have been done after December 2, but he said he was ready to celebrate his birthday in jail. ”Speaking about how Veeramani started his activism, he said, “He started speaking on the stage in Cuddalore when he was just 10 years old. At 11, he spoke at a public meeting in Salem. 

He presided over a public meeting in Nagapattinam when he was 12. He raised the DK flag in Thiruthuraipoondi at 13, and a log of wood was thrown at him while speaking in Cuddalore at 14. At 25, he wrote the basic idea for the protest against the Indian Constitution, and at 30, he became the editor of Viduthalai.”“After Kalaignar passed away, he was instrumental in supporting me in implementing the ‘Dravidian Model’ of governance. He is a lawyer, writer, speaker, leader, activist, journalist, administrator and so on,” he added.
