By the effort of Jayalalitha Two leaves and a golden Pegasus at the MGR Memorial at marina.

Morning walkers at Chennai Beach Road were greeted by an imposing sculpture of two leaves and a golden Pegasus at the MGR Memorial on Sunday 17-12-2012.

Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa surprised her party colleagues and rivals alike by hurriedly unveiling the AIADMK symbol Two Leaves. The DMK had opposed the installation of the party symbol at public cost and a PIL is pending in the Madras high court.

Before the petition was even listed in the court, Jayalalithaa went ahead and unveiled the structure. There are memorials of two former chief ministers—CN

Annadurai andMGR— at the Marina.

Jayalalithaa paid homage at the memorial on Sunday. State ministers, AIADMK MP’s and MLA’s and senior officials were present at the function.

The 3.75-tonne winged horse took four months to make, R Raveendran who created it.

“Officials were told to finish the work in the first week of December and they handed it over on December 4.” “This is the first and only monument in bronze in TamilNadu.”
