Legal Action will be taken against Gurumurthy: Jeyakumar
Tamil Nadu Fisheries Minister D Jayakumar on Tuesday took umbrage at the term “impotent” used by “Thuglaq” magazine editor S Gurumurthy to describe the action taken by the ruling AIADMK against supporters of sidelined leader TTV Dhinakaran, after his shock victory in the RK Nagar bye-poll.
Interacting with reporters in Chennai, Jayakumar said Gurumurthy should control his tongue and only impotent persons will talk about impotency. He said legal action against magazine editor and chartered accountant Gurumurthy would be taken, if necessary, for his defamatory views.
Reacting to the action taken by Chief Miniser K Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam against the supporters of Dhinakaran, Gurumurthy, in a tweet, said: “These weak men took action after almost six months.. Impotent leaders… After shock RK Nagar poll defeat, AIADMK cracks whip against nine Dhinakaran men.”
While Gurumurthy used the term impotent to mean “powerless, weak, ineffective”, the AIADMK Minister Jayakumar and supporters of the ruling party condemned the usage of the word.
