After visiting the victims of the Thoothukudi police firing in hospital in Thoothukudi on Wednesday, Rajini Makkal Mandram founder Rajinikanth said Tamil Nadu will turn into a graveyard if there are continuous protests.

He said, “If there are going to be protests for every issue, Tamil Nadu will turn into a graveyard.”

He urged the police to quickly identify and take strict action against the “anti-social elements’ who “infiltrate the protests” in Thoothukudi.

“Anti-social elements infiltrated the protests and created trouble. The people, who participated in the protests, including the fishermen, are innocent. Same thing happened in the final day of Jallikattu protests.”

He further said, “The whole trouble started when anti-social elements started attacking the police. The problems started then. I will never accept policemen in uniform being attacked.”
