Chennai, Nov 20: In a recent turn of events, Tamil Nadu BJP has strongly criticised Congress MLA Selvaperunthagai for making derogatory remarks against central agencies during a special assembly session. The remarks, where he labeled CBI, ED, and IT officials as ‘intruding dogs,’ have sparked controversy and drawn swift condemnation.
Tamil Nadu BJP president K Annamalai took to the micro-blogging site ‘X’ to share a video capturing the moment when Selvaperunthagai made the controversial comments on the floor of the assembly. The Congress MLA’s remarks, implying that these agencies act like dogs entering ministers’ houses without permission, have raised eyebrows and elicited a strong response from the political community.
Assembly Speaker Appavu was quick to object to Selvaperunthagai’s comments, declaring that such derogatory remarks would be ‘expunged.’ The incident occurred during a special assembly session convened to re-enact 10 Bills that were rejected by Governor RN Ravi.
Tamil Nadu BJP president Annamalai didn’t mince words in his response, linking Selvaperunthagai’s comments to recent developments like the withdrawal of general consent to the CBI and alleged mistreatment of IT officials. Annamalai suggested that such actions stem from a fear of being exposed for corrupt practices and misuse of power.
