Chennai: A video clip of two DMK men throwing two flex boards with the name and picture of ‘Amma’ from a state-run canteen in Chennai went viral today and they were kicked out of the party.

“We lodged a police complaint against him and both were arrested,” DMK leader and former Chennai mayor Maa Subramaniam told reporters.

Boards were again erected at the same places in the canteen and both the persons are registered under different sections of the law, he said.

‘Amma’ the late Chief Minister and AIADMK supremo J. Jayalalithaa is a popular moniker and low-cost ‘Amma Canteens’ run by civic bodies in Tamil Nadu and here by the Chennai Corporation.

The flex type board had Tamil words announcing ‘Amma Canteen’, as well as information about the food served at the restaurant.

Shri Subramaniam said that DMK chief M.K. Stalin ordered both men expelled from the party, filed a police complaint against them and put the board in the same position.

“They have no position in the party. They were ordinary members and have been ousted. The party spokesperson Murasoli will give the news of their ousting in tomorrow’s edition,” said Subramaniam.

The video also showed women being shot on mobile phones by apparent strangers, who were quietly working and watching the demolition.

The video, which went viral on social media, was also posted by AIADMK on its Twitter handle.

AIADMK also shared photographs showing a framed picture of Jayalalithaa scattered around vegetables and some utensils scattered around Kalin’s kitchen.

In another photo, two policemen were seen assessing the scene of the vandalism while workers were spotted.

A video of the board being rearranged from where it was removed in the canteen by DMK men is also being widely shared.
