In another tweet, she clarified that her car was not at fault, and that the tanker 'came out of nowhere' and rammed the vehicle.
Request the press to understand that a container rammed into me and not the other way. My car was on the move in the right lane and this container came from nowhere and rammed into me. Police are investigating n questioning the driver to rule out any foul play.— KhushbuSundar ❤️ (@khushsundar) November 18, 2020
The BJP recently announced that they were resuming the 'Vetrivel Yatra' after the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) government denied permission for it. The AIADMK had even warned them previously not to carry out the Vetrivel Yatra, ahead of Home Minister Amit Shah’s visit to the state on November 21 to discuss poll strategies.
The State BJP L Murugan had explained the reason for holding the Vetrivel Yatra as, 'The intent is to pray for the people of the country amidst challenging times, where every household is affected by Corona.'
Kushboo Sundar, who was a Congress leader, had joined BJP on October 12. Among the other major incidents since Kushboo Sundar’s venture into the BJP ha been when she had been detained last month.
