Chennai, July 20 (IANS) After questioning DMK President M. K. Stalin’s silence on the issue of denigrating Hindu God Lord Murugan, senior Tamil Nadu Minister S. P. Velumani on Monday fired another salvo at Stalin.
In a tweet Velumani urged Stalin not to be a fear monger comparing China with Chennai in respect of the coronavirus spread.
Velumani also urged Stalin ‘to take the necessary medicine to cure himself of the fear mongering disease.’
Earlier in the day Stalin had said the coronavirus spread in Chennai is higher than that of China.
Stalin said despite many state ministers testing positive for coronavirus, Chief Minister K. Palaniswami like a gramophone record with a scratch has been repeating that there is no community spread of the virus and it will be controlled.
Velumani told Stalin not to keep the people of Chennai in a constant state of fear issuing statements comparing the state capital with China.
Though Chennai leads the coronavirus infection table in the state, the numbers have come down from a daily infection rate of about 2,000 cases to less than 1,200.
