Tamil Nadu Bharatiya Janata Party chief K Annamalai attacked the ruling DMK for the ongoing violence on the migrant labourers from Bihar in Tamil Nadu. A day after a case has been lodged against Annamalai for provoking violence and encouraging hostility between different factions.
Earlier, the TN BJP chief in his statement remarked that migrant labourers are safe in the state. But the DMK and CM Stalin are behind the hate against the Bihari labourers.
As per officials, a case has also been lodged against the BJP Bihar Twitter account holder regarding the stir in the state.
The Tamil Nadu police on Saturday booked three people, including an editor of the Dainik Bhaskar in Bihar, for allegedly spreading fake news about migrant workers being attacked in Tamil Nadu. Several videos are floating around on social media about the beating of migrant labourers in the south Indian state.
The news spread like wildfire that people in several districts, such as Coimbatore, Tiruppur, and Chennai, were being targeted. After that, a huge number of people employed in industries like garment, textile, and construction came out united and denied the report.
However, the BJP has been trying to escalate the issue in the Bihar Assembly by making hue and cry and urging the Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to send a team to Chennai to review the safety of the migrant labourers.
Meanwhile, Nitish took the matter seriously regarding the videos of attacks on migrant workers.
In his statement, Tamil Nadu’s Director General of Police Sylendra Babu released a statement, making it clear fake videos are hovering on social media, which is mischievous as well. The persons who are spreading rumours will not be spared.
