Tamil scholar Kannan arrested for his remarks on PM, Shah

Jan 01, 2020 22:49 IST

Tamil Scholar Nellai Kannan has been arrested in Perambalur for making controversial remarks on PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah. The arrest comes hours after BJP’s senior leaders staged a sit-in protest at Gandhi Statue in Marina beach, demanding Kannan's arrest. Speaking at an event organised by the Social Democratic Party of India on Saturday, Kannan had also made critical comments against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami, and his deputy O Panneerselvam over the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act.
