Chennai: Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit, Chief Minister K Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam on Sunday extended Ayudha Pooja and Vijayadasami greetings to the people.

The Governor said Ayudha Pooja being celebrated on Monday marks the triumph of the forces of goodness over evil.
