‘False propaganda’ on migrant labourers: Tamil Nadu BJP chief booked

Annamalai on Saturday released a statement saying that the “Chief Minister Stalin led-Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and its alliance party leaders are the reason for the hate against Bihar migrants in Tamil Nadu.”

Tamil Nadu police have filed a case against Bharatiya Janata Party state chief K Annamalai on charges of inciting violence and promoting enmity between groups after he allegedly spread “false propaganda” against the State government with regard to migrant labourers from north India.

The CCB has filed a case under four sections of 153, 153A(1)(a), 505(1)(b), and 505(1)(c) of the Indian Penal Code for promoting disharmony, enmity or feelings of hatred between different groups on the grounds of religion, race, and language. 

A case is also registered against the BJP Bihar Twitter account holder over the incident.

Annamalai on Saturday released a statement saying that the “Chief Minister Stalin led-Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and its alliance party leaders are the reason for the hate against Bihar migrants in Tamil Nadu.”

Though the Hindutva leader opposed the spread of false news on the attack on the people from Bihar in the state, he said: “DMK’s MPs’ vile comments on North Indians, DMK minister calling them Panipuri Wala, and their alliance partners demanding their exodus has triggered what we see today.”

Responding to the case, the BJP leader tweeted, “I understand DMK has filed cases against me for exposing their 7-decade propaganda against North Indian brothers. So, here is the video of what they spoke about, which was mentioned in my press release yesterday. I challenge Fascist DMK to arrest me!”

Besides,Annamalai, the Tamil Nadu police have also filed cases against four persons including a BJP spokesperson Prashant Umrao and two journalists.

These arrests come after statewide panic was created among migrant workers, working in Tamil Nadu. Several purported videos, showing attacks on migrant workers, circulated on social media.
