Chennai, Sep 14 (IANS) The masks against coronavirus infection on Monday turned into a political protest instrument in Tamil Nadu’s state Assembly.
The DMK Legislators, including party President M. K.Stalin wore a white mask with slogan against the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) on it and attended the session.
The three-day Assembly session is being held at Kalaivanar Arangam instead of the Assembly hall at Fort St.George.
