Bid to burn H. Raja effigy: VCK cadres held

Covai Post Network

A few activists of Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi were arrested here on Friday for attempting to burn the effigy of BJP national Secretary H. Raja, for speaking ill of the VCK President, Thol. Thirumavalavan.

The activists raised slogans against Raja and sought an apology from him for “unnecessarily dragging the party leader and making personal remarks”. As they started to burn the effigy, police foiled the attempt. Police arrested 15 VCK workers.
