The contribution of O.V. Alagesan for the development of Tamil Nadu was recalled by various speakers at his centenary celebrations on 2nd December 2011.

Recalling his association with the Congress leader, Governor K. Rosaiah said that as a student he met Alagesan and requested him to provide railway link to a place in Andhra Pradesh.

Alagesan, who was the Deputy Railway Minister, told him that the Ministry was keen to strengthen the existing railway network and new projects would be taken up later.

At a very early age, Alagesan joined hands with national leaders in the mission to get freedom for the country.

The centenary celebrations in memory of the great leaders of the country were not only to recall their heroic deeds, but also to carry the message to the youth to emulate them, Mr. Rosaiah said.

G.K. Vasan, Union Minister of Shipping, said Alagesan was instrumental in setting up the Integral Coach Factory at Perambur. The Madras Fertiliser's unit at Manali and the Atomic power station at Kalpakkam.

Jayanthi Natarajan, Union Minister of Environment and Forests, who is also the grandniece of Alagesan, said when she was elected Member of Parliament for the first time, Alagesan and his family members blessed her.

His guidance helped her learn how to be a good Parliamentarian.

A. Vamanan, son of Alagesan who is also the convener of the programme, B.S. Gnanadesikan, president, Tamil Nadu Congress Committee, and Sarojini Varadappan, were among those who spoke.

The Governor released a souvenir. The first copy was received by Mr. Vasan.
