Tamil Nadu BJP Secy Arrested for Social Media Post, Annamalai Slams Ruling DMK

Chennai: SG Suryah, the state secretary of the Tamil Nadu BJP, was arrested by the police from Chennai late on Friday. According to sources, the police action was related to a complaint lodged by the CPI(M) regarding a social media post by the BJP leader.

Suryah was arrested under sections of the IPC and the IT Act.

Tamil Nadu BJP president, K Annamalai slammed this arrest as an attempt to “curtail free speech”.

“The arrest of @BJP4TamilNadu State Secretary Thiru @SuryahSG avl is highly condemnable. His only mistake was to expose the nasty double standards of the communists, allies of DMK. Using state machinery to curtail free speech & getting jittery for the slightest criticism is unbecoming of a democratically elected leader and, indeed, are signs of an autocratic leader in the making,” Annamalai tweeted.
