Amid the row over Tamil Nadu Governor RN Ravi’s remark that ‘Tamizhagam’ rather than ‘Tamil Nadu’ would be a more appropriate name for the state, many posters with the words ‘#Getout Ravi’ were spotted in Valluvar Kottam and Anna Salai areas of West Chennai.
Amid the controversy over the Governor’s remark, ‘#Getout Ravi’ has been a top trend on Twitter for the last few days.
Dramatic scenes played out in Tamil Nadu Assembly yesterday as the Governor arrived for his customary address at the opening session.
Members of the ruling DMK and its allies, the Congress and the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) started raising slogans against the Governor before staging a walkout from the Assembly.
DMK MLAs raised slogans such as “Don’t impose BJP, RSS ideology”.
The DMK and allies opposed the Governor’s stand and accused him of toeing the BJP’s ideological position.
“This is not Nagaland, this is proud Tamil Nadu,” the legislators chanted.
However, Governor Ravi continued delivering his address amid the uproar. The treasury bench also demanded a ban on online gambling.
The ruling party legislators accused the Governor of sitting on a Bill banning online gambling.
There is an ongoing tussle between the ruling DMK and the Raj Bhavan over several Bills which are pending the Governor’s assent, including the one against online gambling and wager-based online games.
A total of 21 Bills passed in the Assembly are pending with Raj Bhavan as of December 2022, sources said.
