Ruling AIADMK and opposition DMK party against the centre's move

Ruling AIADMK and opposition DMK party today has asked the centre to reconsider its step to change the Pongal holiday into a restricted holiday. The decision comes as a big shock that Pongal festival, which was a compulsory holiday for the central government employees in Tamil Nadu, has been made restricted holiday,” said AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala.

She also said that "The festival transcends caste and religious feelings and it is the Centre’s “duty” to provide a holiday for the families to celebrate it". 

The opposition DMK has announced the protest against the move on Wednesday.
