New Delhi: Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, BJP National Organization General Secretary PL Chandosh and others have condemned the arrest of BJP State Secretary SG Surya on charges of spreading false information on social media.
Nirmala Sitharaman posted on Twitter, “Tamil Nadu BJP State Secretary S.G. Surya has been arrested in the middle of the night due to one of his social media posts. His arrest is condemnable. To punish S. G. Surya for not taking appropriate action on the Malakuzhi deaths and raising questions about it.” Is it fair to try? The Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu should immediately release Surya. The dual role of the DMK and its ally, the Communist Party, has thrown light on an important social issue. All the volunteers will not give up and fight against this legally,” he said.
BJP National Organization General Secretary PL Chandosh posted on Twitter, “A person who was forced to clean a toilet has died. Since the person who forced the deceased was a member of CPM, BJP State Secretary SG Surya has criticized CPM’s Madurai MP. “Not a single word of objection. Yet he has been arrested. Chief Minister M. K. Stalin has become impatient with the arrest of a Tamil Nadu minister (Senthil Balaji). He must remember one thing. We fought against Emergency in 1975 and will fight now. You have chosen the wrong target.” stated.
Speaking to reporters in Delhi about this matter, BJP’s Tom Vadakan said, “It was a councilor belonging to the Communist Party who forced him to go down the toilet and clean it. SG Surya’s arrest for condemning it on Twitter deserves strong condemnation. It is clear that Chief Minister M. K. Stalin is misusing his power. By this he is trying to take away freedom of speech. Isn’t this politics of revenge?” He has questioned.
“It is a crime under the law to be forced to work in waste water mixed with faeces. (Because of this, he was going to the hospital due to itching and later died). Viswanathan, a member of the 12th Ward of Pannadam Municipality, called Nathan, was asked to do this. He belongs to the Marxist Communist Party. Action should be taken against him. I have also recommended to District Superintendent of Police and District Collector.
Madurai Member of Parliament S.Venkatesan is closing his eyes and mouth because the ward member belongs to his party and the person who died in the sewage belongs to the list of the community,” said National Sanitation Workers’ Commission Chairman Ma.Venkatesan in his Twitter post.
Union Minister for Electronics and Technology Rajeev Chandrasekhar, BJP National General Secretary C.T. Ravi, BJP National Youth President Tejashwi Surya, BJP Women’s Team President Vanathi Srinivasan, BJP senior leader H. Raja, former Union Minister Pon. Radhakrishnan and S.G. They have strongly condemned the arrest of Surya.
At the same time, S.Venkatesan MP has mentioned that Madurai does not have Pannadam municipality and has strongly criticized that ‘central ministers are advocating for a person who spreads lies’. Details: Nirmala Sitharaman’s condemnation and Su Venkatesan’s response
