Published On: June 24, 2024 - A political row has erupted over the hooch tragedy in Kallakurichi, which claimed 58 lives. On Monday, Union Health Minister and BJP National President JP Nadda wrote to Congress Chief Mallikarjun Kharge, questioning the party's silence on the issue. Nadda accused the Congress of maintaining a “stoic silence” over the tragedy. In his letter, Nadda described the incident as a man-made disaster, alleging that the illicit liquor mafia operates with impunity under the DMK government in Tamil Nadu. He claimed the state government was more focused on a cover-up than taking responsibility and action, leading to further deaths. Nadda also urged Kharge to push for a CBI probe into the disaster.
