A video of Tamil Nadu’s Minister for Fisheries- Fishermen’s Welfare and Animal Husbandry Anita Radhakrishnan is becoming quite viral on social media. It is seen in this video that a fisherman took the minister in his lap and took him to the surface from the water. This is because the minister’s shoe would get wet when he got into the water. In fact, Anita Radhakrishnan, the state’s Minister of Fisheries and Fishermen’s Welfare and Animal Husbandry, had reached Palaverkadu to take stock of the sea erosion. After coming here, he interacted with the local people and sat on a boat to take stock of the sea erosion. After taking stock, when the boat stopped on the shore, a fisherman put a chair in front of the boat so that minister Anita Radhakrishnan could get off easily. But for fear of getting the shoes wet, Anita Radhakrishnan hesitated to get off the boat.
After this, a fisherman picked up the minister Anita Radhakrishnan in her lap and carried her to the surface. The video of a fisherman carrying Minister Anita Radhakrishnan in her arms has gone viral on social media and people on social media started criticizing the minister for VIP culture. After getting her grit, Anita Radhakrishnan has given her clarification on this whole matter.

Talking to ‘India Today’, Minister Anita Radhakrishnan said that ‘he agreed to sit on his shoulder after seeing the love of the fisherman. What’s wrong with that. If he asks with affection, it would have been wrong if I asked him to sit on his shoulder. Let us inform that Anita R Radhakrishnan was elected from Tiruchendur assembly constituency in 2001 and 2006 on AIADMK ticket. After that he joined DMK and won from this seat in 2009 (by-election), 2011, 2016 and 2021 also. He was made a minister after the victory in 2021.
