Yesterday, a video was released where an auto driver was assaulted for asking the BJP Chief over the rising fuel price.
However, Tamilisai Soundararajan showed up at the auto driver Kathir’s house after the incident.
In the video, Kathir was seen being elbowed twice and was pushed away BJP leader V Kalidas.
While Kathir expressed his sorrow that his situation was misinterpreted, Tamilisai Soundararajan stated that the auto driver was drunk at the time of the incident.
“The media is projecting it as if I was smiling when he was beaten up. I had heard him and a reporter asked the same question. So I was responding to the media and didn’t notice what was happening behind me. It was my co-worker who pushed him aside as he was drunk. If it (manhandling) happened, it was wrong, but he was removed keeping others’ safety in mind,” she said.
She had uploaded her visit to Kathir’s house on her Twitter handle:
