Ahead of the Tamil nadu assembly election which is scheduled on 6th of April, Political parties of the state are looking for all the ways to promote their party and symbol. BJP’s Tejasvi Surrya, National President of BJP Yuva Morcha, on Friday, came up with a twitter post sharing about his experience of eating break fast as a restaurant. He said that the cashier hesitated to accept money and received it after his insistence.
In his post, Surya took a dig at DMK party based on an incident that took place in a hotel. The men of DMK including youth secretary Yuvraj, visited a hotel and claimed free biriyani, said a hotel owner who got severely beaten by them after denying their demands. The incident took place in 2018 and DMK suspended those who were involved in causing trouble for the hotel owner. DMK leader MK Stalin also visited the hotel to comfort the owner. However, the incident still haunts the party and gained them a black mark.
Now, mentioning the incident Tejasvi Surya, in his tweet, says that he told the restaurant owner that he is from BJP, a party that respects all and protects all and Not DMK. “Today after breakfast at restaurant, I naturally went to pay. Cashier hesitated to accept money. With great hesitation he accepted after insistence. I told him that we are from BJP. A party that respects all and protects all. Not DMK to do roll-call even from small businesses.” his Twitter post read.
