The BJP has now slammed the DMK minister for disrespecting party workers. Tamil Nadu BJP Chief K. Annamalai tweeted, “In India’s history, has anybody seen a govt minister throwing stones at people? Display of this by a @arivalayam party DMK Govt Minister, Thiru @Avadi_Nasar. Throwing stones at people in frustration. No decency, No decorum & treating people like slaves! That’s DMK for you.”
Social media users also bashed the leader for such an inappropriate act.
“Rowdies are decent compared to the ministers,” said a person.
Another person said, “Entitlement of the highest order.”
One user commented, “Most of the Indian politicians are hopeless and cheaters. People of India are also responsible for this type of leader.”
The incident took place when the minister was checking the arrangements for an event where Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin is expected to take part tomorrow.
