Tamil Nadu Governor R N Ravi on Monday hosted at the Raj Bhavan, the ceremonial ‘At Home Reception’ on completion of 75 years of India’s Independence.
Following the Independence Day celebrations at the Raj Bhavan, Ravi hosted the reception in which Chief Minister M K Stalin, Speaker of the Tamil Nadu Assembly M Appavu and Chief Justice of Madras High Court Justice Munishwar Nath Bhandari took part.
On April 14 this year, when Ravi hosted the At Home Reception, the DMK regime boycotted it in view of the face-off between the government and Raj Bhavan over NEET issue. This is the first ‘At Home Reception,’ Stalin and his Cabinet colleagues are taking part after the DMK assumed power in May 2021.
