Facing ‘heat’ from the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party over the ‘petrol bomb incident’ outside the Governor’s residence in Tamil Nadu, the DMK party’s IT wing on Thursday posted a meme on social media that reportedly accuses the Raj Bhavan of exaggerating the issue.
In a reply to a vernacular news channel, reporting the incident, the IT wing of DMK posted the meme on the social media platform, X. Earlier on Wednesday, around 3 pm, an unidentified person tried to throw some bottles of petrol outside Raj Bhavan near barricades. As soon as this was noticed by the security personnel present there, they surrounded him, confiscated other bottles from his hand, and immediately handed him over to the patrol vehicle and took him to the police station.
Prem Anand Sinha, Additional Commissioner of Police said, the person has been identified as history-sheeter K Vinod who is a habitual offender with six-seven cases against him.
Tamil Nadu BJP President K Annamalai on Wednesday alleged that the petrol bomb incident outside Raj Bhawan shows that the DMK government is “sponsoring” these attacks, adding that Chief Minister MK Stalin is adopting “diversification tactics.”
In a post on X, Tamil Nadu BJP President Annamalai said, “Petrol bombs were hurled at Raj Bhavan today, reflects the true law and order situation in Tamil Nadu. While DMK is busy diverting the attention of people to insignificant matters of interest, criminals have taken the streets.”He further stated that Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin would remain silent on the incident and employ diversion tactics.
“Incidentally, it is the same person who attacked BJP Tamil Nadu Headquarters in Chennai in Feb 2022 who is held responsible for the attack on Raj Bhavan today. These continuous attack only leaves one to think that the DMK government is sponsoring these attacks. Thiru MK Stalin will now be preparing for the next diversion, as he always does,” he said.
