When this minister can’t even bend his body to remove the footwear on his own, he should avoid wearing those with buckles. While leaving home, the menial staff would have helped him wear them & so in a public place he thinks nothing wrong in asking a child to remove it for him.🤦♂️ pic.twitter.com/oMYenGkZ5h— Mohamed Imranullah S (@imranhindu) February 6, 2020

Now the latest update about the Minister giving clarification about his activity has been updated by Puthiya Thalaimurai. “When I was on my way to visit the temple, those boys were playing nearby. Assuming him as my grandchild, I asked him to take off the buckle of my sandal. He is just a small boy. I didn’t ask any elder people to do that.” said Sreenivasan who denied the accusations against him.
