Thanjavur: Naming a government hospital in Chennai after former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi is an attempt by Chief Minister M Karunanidhi to continue the DMK`s alliance with Congress in Tamil Nadu for the coming assembly polls, P Nedumaran, President, Tamil Desiya Iyakkam, said here on Tuesday.
Challenging the DMK`s contention that the hospital was named after the late Congress leader because he had undergone treatment there, Nedumaran argued that eminent personalities such as Dravidar Kazhagam founder E V Ramaswamy Naicker, former Chief Ministers K Kamaraj and C N Annadurai had also been patients of the hospital.
Nedumaran said Karunanidhi should have named the hospital after one of those leaders "who fought for the uplift of the Tamils."
