MK Stalin’s Party Worker Sets Himself On Fire Over “Hindi Imposition”

MK Stalin's party member set himself on fire for 'impression of Hindi'

Police said they recovered a piece of paper written by the elderly DMK employee


Police said an elderly DMK worker on Saturday set himself on fire near the party office in Salem district to protest “Hindi imposition”.

Thangavel, 85, a former DMK peasant wing worker, went to the party office and raised a slogan against “Hindi imposition”. He then allegedly poured kerosene over himself and lit a match.

Some party staff tried to save him but it was too late, police said.

Police said they recovered a note mentioning the central government that “it is not necessary to impose Hindi when the Tamil language is here.”

Condolences to the death, Minister MK Stalin in a statement said “no more lives should be lost. We will continue to fight against the political and democratic oppression of the Hindi people. I won’t rest until the roar reaches the federal government.”
