Tamil Nadu politician arrested for morphing PM Narendra Modi on beggar
Chennai : A Tamil Nadu politician was arrested by the police after he posted a morphed image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on a Facebook page. The police said that the accused caricatured PM Modi and depicted him with a begging bowl.
Sathiyaraj alias Balu, an MDMK worker in Sirkazhi town, was arrested after a complaint was lodged by the local BJP leader J Swaminathan. He has been charged with intent to disrupt peace and to create ill-will between classes, news agency AFP reported.
The accused minister has been kept under judicial custody and will be produced in the court on Tuesday.
The MDMK worker had allegedly posted the picture on January 26 when members of his party were protesting against PM Modi's visit to Madurai. The party accuses the PM of betraying the interests of Tamil Nadu.
