Chennai , May 23:

DMK Organisation Secretary and Rajya Sabha MP R S Bharathi was arrested today for his alleged disparaging remarks made against a particular community a few months ago, police said.

Senior DMK party leader was picked up from his house this morning for allegedly making the comments against a particular community, with a case being filed against him recently.

Bharathi said his remarks made at a DMK meeting in February had been “twisted” and said it was not reported in any newspaper while “some in the social media carried out a campaign against me.” Speaking to reporters here, he said he had “responded” to the issue then in the media and more than 100 days had passed off since then.
