If DMK wins, Thaipusam holiday will be cancelled – DMK leader MK Stalin
The demand for a government holiday for Thaipusam has been around for a long time. In this context, Chief Minister Palaniachai announced a government holiday for Thaipusam Day. The government has announced that the holiday will continue in the coming years.
Political parties began to celebrate their own victory as a public holiday on Thaipusam Day.
In this context, an edited news card claiming that MK Stalin had said that the Thaipusam holiday would be cancelled if the DMK came to power after winning the 2021 elections is going viral.
Nowhere does MK Stalin’s say that Thaipusam holiday will be canceled. No such news card was published in the Puthiyathalaimurai news on January 5th.
As political parties begin their election campaign for the Tamil Nadu Assembly elections, fake news cards and edited videos are being widely circulated.
