The BJP members have been spreading a photo on social media, claiming that Viduthalai Siruthaigal Katchi MP Thol. Thirumavalavan, who accompanied the opposition candidate Yashwant Sinha in the presidential election, had been sidelined while filing his candidature.

The news published on the Dinamalar website, “Opposition parties proudly filed nominations sidelining Thiruma” and the photo of Thirumavalavan standing behind the opposition leaders has gone viral on social media.

What is the truth?

MP Thirumavalavan’s Twitter page, “Mr Yashwant Sinha filed his nomination at 12.30 pm on June 27. The nomination, which was proposed and signed by the Leaders of the Opposition Parliamentary Committee Members and Members of the Legislature – was submitted to the Secretary-General of Parliament.”

In the Sansad TV video that released the nomination live, Rahul Gandhi, Akhilesh Yadav, DMK MPs Trichy Siva, Rasa and many other party representatives can be seen coming in and taking their seats. Thirumavalavan enters the back row in the 16th minute, stands for a while and then sits down. Thirumavalavan then stands up at 18:30 at the time of filing the nomination. We can clearly see him sitting in the chair after the nomination was filed in the 23rd minute.

In addition, Thirumavalavan has been posting photos on Twitter for the past few days of his presence in the consultative meeting on the presidential candidate.

News published by Dinamalar, “Thirumavalavan did not have a chair to sit at the time of filing the nomination. Thus he was standing sideways behind. But, the photos of him sitting in the chair also were seen. Then it looks like he got up to look at the filing or for some reason.

However, the opposition leaders proudly filed their nomination papers, leaving not even a plastic chair and sidelining Thirumavalavan, who is all set to put efforts for the victory of the Congress-DMK alliance’s presidential candidate.”

First, they published news that the chair was not provided and later changed it. But, even after updating additional lines, it was understood that Thirumavalavan was referred to as standing while reading the title and main content.


The Dinamalar news and the BJP’s post that MP Thirumavalavan was sidelined during the nomination of the opposition party’s presidential candidate were false.
