Palanivel dismisses video clip as ‘doctored and completely untrue’
He said the contents of the three-minute video clip uploaded on the Kitchen UP TV Facebook page, have been "doctored and completely untrue".
"I have never made and will never make such untrue statements or remarks," he said tonight.
Palanivel said he will lodge a police report on the matter, urging authorities to conduct a thorough investigation and bring those responsible to justice. "I am appalled that people can stoop to such a low level to put up untrue video clip for reasons best known to them.
"I can only see this being the result of the fresh elections for MIC that I have called and the solid show of support by the branch chairmen of MIC to my leadership." he said.
