INDIA Team Latestly|

On a visit to inspect complaints of seashore erosion by fishermen, Tamil Nadu Fisheries Minister Anitha R Radhakrishnan may have managed to avoid stepping into muddy waters but he landed in controversy on July 8. A video showing Radhakrishnan being carried by fishermen from a boat to the shore on their shoulders in the Thiruvallur district has been widely shared on social media. The incident took place at the end of a survey for which he took a boat ride. Dressed in spotless white complete with matching sneakers, the minister was seen getting onto a chair kept in the water from the boat, before being carried to the shore. Denying reports that he refused to step in the water, he told NDTV "over-enthusiastic" fishermen lifted him on their own out of affection. "Some hugged me, some even kissed me," the minister told NDTV. Watch the video to know more.
