Stalin must apologize for Maran's remarks, says L. Murugan

DMK president MK Stalin must publicly apologize for comments from his party colleague and DMK deputy Dayanidhi Maran referring to the scheduled castes last week, BJP unit president told Tamil Nadu, L. Murugan. He also said that Mr. Stalin should take action against members of his party who insulted the community.

Mr. Murugan asked the state to take the necessary action against Mr. Maran for his comments, which constituted an offense under the SC / ST Act (Atrocity Prevention Act).

He said that DMK often spoke in degrading terms of people in the community who had fought against all odds and had reached high-level positions in various fields.

On the issue of changes to the electricity law, which the government of Tamil Nadu opposed, Mr. Murugan said that the Center had not asked for the views of governments of the states and that there was no cancellation of the free electricity program in the state.
