Madurai, Oct 30 (UNI) Lord Ram, who is at the centre of a controversy over the Sethusamudram Shipping Canal Project, appears to have come to the rescue of Tamil Nadu Congress Committee (TNCC) president M Krishnaswamy, when an armed gang stabbed him with a spade last night.
''It is lord Ram, who saved our leader,'' a party functionary, who accompanied Mr Krishnaswamy in his car on way to Mudukulathur to attend a function said.
The functionary told UNI that Mr Krishnaswamy was wearing a pendant with the portrait of Lord Ram and the assailants stabbed him below the chest.
The pendant bore the brunt. But for the pendant with a picture of Lord Ram, the stab would have been fatal for the Congress leader, he added.
