Thirukkural stanzas removed from govt buses in Chennai


Thirukkural couplets have been removed from many government buses in Chennai. Mofussil buses operated from Chennai to Tiruvannamalai, Vellore, Villupuram districts and Puducherry presently operate without the Thirukkural couplets. Couplet stickers have been removed. These couplets are also not displayed in the newly launched low-cost AC buses to Puducherry and Tiruvannamalai.

It was in 1968, the then government headed by C N Annadurai directed the display of couplets of Thirukkural along with authorised picture of poet Thiruvalluvar in all government buses. The government said the initiative was aimed at inculcating the spirit of Thirukkural among government employees and the public.
