Politics also started on the matter
Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state president K. Annamalai criticized the police for allegedly stopping him from carrying the Indian flag. He said, “The police outside the stadium did not allow fans to carry the Indian flag in today’s match. Who gave this right to Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA)?
He wrote on the social media platform ‘X’, “We demand the strictest action against the police officers for insulting our national flag and DMK should apologize to the people of the state. If this is not done, the Tamil Nadu unit of BJP will be forced to protest against the corrupt DMK government for insulting the sanctity of the tricolor.
