Watch: Tamil Nadu minister throws stone at party worker for not giving chair
By Swarnali Saha
On Tuesday, a Tamil Nadu minister was caught on camera losing his temper and throwing a stone at a party worker, allegedly over a delay in bringing chairs for him at an event in Tiruvallur.
A video shared on Twitter by news agency ANI shows Milk and Dairy Development Minister SM Nasar inspecting arrangements for the event, which chief minister MK Stalin was scheduled to participate tomorrow.
The minister apparently became angry when a party worker failed to deliver him chairs on time and hurled a stone at him. The incident's video has gone viral on social media.
The minister also made headlines last year after allegedly spread false news that the Narendra Modi government had levied Goods & Service Tax (GST) for milk because of which the milk prices have risen.
Saran while addressing the reporters said, “The Union Government has levied GST for milk too. It is an unprecedented incident. As a consequence of levying GST for milk, the selling price of milk has gone up.”
