After which, the leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) slammed the DMK minister for disrespecting their party workers.
Tamil Nadu BJP Chief K. Annamalai tweeted, “In India’s history, has anybody seen a govt minister throwing stones at people? Display of this by a @arivalayam party DMK Govt Minister, Thiru @Avadi_Nasar. Throwing stones at people in frustration. No decency, No decorum & treating people like slaves! That’s DMK for you.”
A few months back, Nasar was caught allegedly while peddling wrong information that the central government had started levying Goods and Services Tax (GST) on milk. He said so while trying to justify the steep hike in the price of the state-owned Aavin milk packets.
