There are protests in Tamil Nadu condemning the killing of an Indian soldier. Protests and initiations are being held across the country to condemn these murders. Recently, a hunger strike was started near the Anna Salai Omandurar Government Hospital in Chennai. On this occasion, former soldier, Colonel B Pandian made sensational remarks. A former army jawan made controversial remarks during a hunger strike organized by the BJP in Chennai on Tuesday, condemning the death of an in-service jawan due to an attack by some people, including a DMK councillor.
Pandian said that threatening or committing crimes is not new to DMK workers, if you look back in history, they will know about it. He said that he is warning the Tamil Nadu government that the Indian Army is the second largest army in the world and the most disciplined army. He said that it would not be good for the Tamil Nadu (DMK) government if army jawans are provoked. Pandian said if you try to test us, it will lead to law and order problems.
Ex-soldiers are skilled in bombings, shooting, and also..Indian Army has good fighting skills. We know all these things.. but we don’t want to do it. I request the state government not to do such things. This is a warning, he said. She went on a hunger strike near Omandurar Government Hospital at Anna Salai in Chennai. State vice-presidents Karu Nagarajan, VP Duraisamy, other BJP cadres and retired army personnel from various departments participated in this. The BJP said that this strike was taken to condemn the killing of Lance Naik Prabhu and the attack on the residence of the leader of the party’s scheduled castes wing, Tada Periyasamy.
When reporters questioned his speech, Pandian defended his remarks and said that if such incidents are repeated again, they will take similar actions. He said that the government should give severe punishment to the accused who killed the army man. BJP is also planning a candle light rally from Omandurar Hospital to War Memorial.
On February 14, Lance Naik Prabhu was attacked in Krishnagiri district of Tamil Nadu. Prabhu succumbed to his injuries at the hospital. Krishnagiri police registered a case and arrested nine accused. He denied that there was any political dimension in the incident. It was said to be a minor dispute between two close friends. Krishnagiri SP Saroj Kumar Thakur told reporters last week that on February 8 near Pochampally, Prabhu had a petty quarrel with Prabhu over the use of a public water tank and the petty quarrel led to the murder.
