A DMK meeting in Coimbatore created a huge ruckus in Tamil Nadu with VK Sasikala and TTV Dinakaran blaming the government and law enforcement departments in the state for ignoring the COVID protocol.
Condemning the statement made by Health Minister Ma Subramaniam that the DMK meeting in Coimbatore was held in the interior area of Kodisia Hall, AMMK General Secretary TTV Dhinakaran said, “The Health Minister has explained that there is no violation of COVID-19 norms in the meeting. it was done. In Coimbatore, Udayanidhi Stalin, secretary of the youth wing, participated. His claim that the DMK performed at the Codisia Indoor amounts to a cover-up of the incident in the open.
According to Udayanidhi Stalin, 25,000 people participated in the event. As per their claim, even a child who sees pictures or videos of the event in which Udayanidhi Stalin attended, would understand whether it took place in the interior area or in the open field? At least how many of them are wearing masks? Are you sitting by maintaining social distance? TTV slammed Dinakaran.
What is the need to mobilize DMK members in the name of consultative meetings at a time when the central party has also moved to Tamil Nadu due to Omicron’s rise in the state? Could it be that they are the ones who impose restrictions to contain the spread and create health risks to the public through their party members?, Dhinakaran pointed out.
“When the police stopped us from paying tribute at the memorial of revolutionary leader MGR, the AMMK acted as a socially responsible political movement, citing the growing proliferation of Omicron. But did the police formally call the DMK? to start a program in Tamil Nadu’s Coimbatore district? If the police had given permission for such discrimination, we would move the court in future citing the Coimbatore incident as evidence, if the police denies permission while we were protesting with appropriate COVID-19 spread prevention guidelines for public health issues,” he said.
Similarly, on a statement, VK Sasikala raised the slogan “Does Annasalai, Coimbatore Codisia Hall not know by police as public places? Won’t Omicron spread there?” He alleged. Sasikala said the Tamil Nadu government should not act unilaterally but follow the law that everyone is equal.
