Video: TN Sports Minister’s late night inspection at girls hostel

Chennai: Tamil Nadu Sports Minister S Sundararajan has stirred up a controversy by inspecting girl’s hostel at midnight.

A video of the minister’s on Saturday night surprise ‘inspection’ of the school shows  Dr. Sundararaj allegedly chided young women hockey players, saying why he should feed them if they were not able to win any medals?

Not accompanied by any woman warden, the minister touched the t-shirts of some girls, making them feel embarrassed, claimed the reports.

“Why are we feeding her if she is not winning any medal,” the minister said. “You have put on weight no? We give you Rs 250 for food every day, and we give college students Rs 200 a month. You get more than them combined. I will only give money according to the food you eat,” Sundararaj told another player.

DMK leader TKS Elangovan, however, said this is not a language of a minister, adding that he should be punished for his “derogatory” act. Elangovan added that the ruling state government has such people in their cabinet.
