Why do late muthuramalinga thevar, one of the Indian freedom fighter is so popular in tamil nadu?what's so special about him?

With due respects to him, he wouldn't have liked the way his name is being used/exploited now. He was just a local leader with limited influence in a particular area, more known as a caste leader for a particular group (Thevars)  but now equated with God.

He had his share of spat with a Dalit leader and even was accused in his killing. His memory was fading away after his death, but somehow resurrected by the community groups belonging to his caste.
