Tamil pupil Nellai Kannan booked for his speech against PM; BJP wants him arrested

The Tamil Nadu unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has introduced protest in opposition to senior Congress leader in nation and student Nellai Kannan.

Kannan used to be booked by the police for making derogatory comments in opposition to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah on the passage of citizenship law.

The police action came after the Congress chief requested the minorities to finish-off PM Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah at a assembly arranged through Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) in Tirunelveli on Sunday.

“I used to be anticipating Saheebs to stop Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah. But no one is doing that,” Kannan had stated at the meeting.

He similarly stated that Home Minister Amit Shah is controlling the PM.


A day after Kannan’s controversial speech, BJP country wide secretary H Raja advised Tamil Nadu police to arrest Kannan for derogatory remarks towards the PM and HM.

“The Congress flesh presser Nellai Kannan has instigated the Muslims to end off PM and HM in his speech. I have complained to the Director General of Tamil Nadu Police, through WhatsApp and on on-line too. I request the TN Gov to take instant action,” H Raja said in a tweet.

He further stated that Kannan has now not only handed derogatory feedback towards Prime Minister Modi and Home Minister Shah, however “gave a existence risk to them with the aid of instigating Muslims”. “It seems Kannan wishes to do something which passed off for Rajiv Gandhi in Tamil Nadu,” Raja said on Twitter.


On his complaint, the Tamil Nadu Police booked Kannan beneath IPC section 504, 505 and 505(2) for making an attempt to instigate violence, instigating anybody to indulge in violence, and creating violence between two groups.

Raja in addition declared that 4 senior BJP workers would stage dharna if the police fails to arrest the Congress leader.

“I have tried to attain Nellai Kannan thru his telephone number. A voicemail speaks in Kannada says that the number is currently now not reachable. I, BJP senior chief La Ganesan, former Union minister Pon Radhakrishnan and BJP chief CP Radhakrishnan will launch a dharna before Mahatma Gandhi’s statue if the police does now not arrest Kannan,” stated Raja.


BJP workers have been protesting against Kannan in Tirunelveli. The 74-year-old chief was once stopped through the BJP people from going to hospital. As the private health center reportedly denied him admission, Kannan headed to another medical institution for fitness check-up.
