Year 1996.DMK makes a clean sweep in the Tamilnadu assembly elections.Karunanithi becomes chief minister.Removes the name Jayalalitha from everywhere.Jayalalitha Film City renamed MGR Film city.J J Nagar near Anna Nagar renamed Mogappair(whose roads were,for long, under repair). J Jayalalitha Transport Corporation(a partner to the then existing Tiruvalluvar Transport corporation) renamed Rajiv Gandhi Transport corporation.

Year 2001.The ADMK triumphs the assembly elections.Mogappair(the roads were still under repair) becomes J J Nagar again.RGTC's name stands changed as State Express Transport Corporation famously known to many as Waste Express Transport Corporation.Kalaignar Karunanithi Nagar,which is better known as K K Nagar,is renamed as K K Nagar,with no expansions for the K's.

Year 2006.K K Nagar renamed Kalaignar Nagar(noticed on a 12G bus).

Even before the election results were announced one particular bus carried the name Mogappair.This might be because the mechanics who serviced the bus belong to the DMK union.Observations and inferences apart,it remains to be seen whether the people of TamilNadu would be put to stressful activities such as modifying a part of their addresses because of these name changing exercises.
