Minister Natarajan becomes tea master in Tiruchy to seduce voters
The minister returned to Tiruchy from Chennai after the seat allocation process. It was awarded to Tiruchy East from where it was previously selected. The cadre planned a warm welcome led by the minister’s son Jawaharlal Nehru and received the minister at the airport with flowers and crackers. Afterwards, they went to the Rockfort Temple, worshipped, and then asked for the public’s votes.
Suddenly, the minister went to a tea stall in Andal Veedhi and started making tea and distributing it to the cadres following him. He also distributed food to them.
He asked for votes from NSB road, Theppakulam, Chinnakadai veedhi and Nandhikoil street.
Interestingly, the executive, who was with the minister, said that he made tea like a true tea master and some even went so far as to salute him as he served tea that was tastier than the tea masters. The minister, who took this as a compliment, stayed for about 30 minutes and handed out tea to everyone who passed. According to an official, it was the idea of Minister Jawaharlal Nehru’s son and it worked well. “He is making a plan in such a way as to reach the public and win the name of a simple man,” said one of the officials who accompanied the minister, adding that people would witness several such ideas which are in Nehru’s kitty.
