This noble gesture by 'The Hindu' has gone viral

December 07, 2016 14:24


Even as millions of AIADMK supporters thronged the Rajaji Hall to pay their last respects to Jayalalithaa, the state authorities had deployed enough forces to ensure that the situation never went out of control.

The police had their work cut out. But with shops shut and eateries closed, there was little the personnel could do to end their hunger.

That's when the Chennai office of The Hindu newspaper stepped up to express its gratitude to the cops who have been working tirelessly to ensure peace and harmony across the city.

In a gesture that touched thousands of hearts, the canteen of the newspaper office provided food and refreshments to the police.

Jarshad Kakkrakandy, an employee of The Hindu, took a photograph and shared it on Facebook. The photo has gone viral since.




How Tamil Nadu Police ensured calm amid anguish after Jayalalithaa's death

CHENNAI: The day after the demise of former chief minister J Jayalalithaa, fear of violence erupting was palpable across the state. Many remembered the period after former chief minister M G Ramachandran's death in December 1987 when grieving supporters of the matinee idol-turned politician+ ran amok, mainly in Chennai.

On Tuesday, Tamil Nadu+ , known for hero worship and extreme reactions over the death of a mass leader, remained completely free of violence. There was not a single suicide bid. This, many feel, was due to the change in the people's mindset and also because of the precautionary measures put in place.

In Coimbatore, the day was marked by silent processions, loyal party cadres tonsuring their heads and paying tributes to portraits of Jayalalithaa at street corners, under the gaze of police personnel. In Trichy and Madurai too, police were in control of the situation as elsewhere in the state.

The security arrangements in Chennai were elaborate, with 10,000 policemen deployed to maintain law and order. Between Rajaji Hall on Anna Salai, where the late chief minister's body lay since Monday night, and the MGR memorial on the Marina beach, where she was buried on Tuesday evening, at least 2,000 policemen, including personnel of the swift action group and rapid action force, kept things under control.



The police force came in for praise from the comissioner for providing security to all the VVIPs, including President Pranab Mukherjee, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda and 15 chief ministers.
