Why would people who did not protest for the hike in the price of rice and lentils which are essentials, protest for the hike in the price of luxury items like petrol?
A BJP party poster claiming that Annamalai mentioned petrol as a luxury item, is being circulated on social media.
What is the Truth?
When the Tamil Nadu BJP Twitter page is searched, a poster dated October 24 reporting, “I heard that the Minister Sekar Babu spoke on how to handle BJP. Let DMK touch BJP, then BJP will retaliate with interest, said BJP State President Annamalai”, is found.
அமைச்சர் சேகர் பாபு பாஜகவை எப்படி கையாள வேண்டும் என சொன்னதாக அறிகிறேன்.
பாஜகவை திமுக தொட்டு பார்க்கட்டும், பாஜக மீது கைவைத்தால் வட்டியும் முதலுமாக திருப்பி தருவோம்!
