CISF jawans did not know Tamil, the minister could not understand the matter; Argument between the two at the airport


Tamil Nadu Finance Minister was stopped by a security force personnel at Chennai airport. After this, there was a ruckus at the airport for a long time. In fact, at around 5.50 am on Thursday morning, Tamil Nadu Finance Minister Palanivel Thiagaran was stopped at the airport by a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officer. It is being told that the Finance Minister was going to Thoothukudi and during this time he kept his luggage for scanning at the domestic terminal.

According to reports, the officer told the minister that a person cannot carry two laptops. However, he later admitted that there is no such rule. When the officials at the airport came to know that the person they had stopped for having two laptops was the finance minister of the state, senior security forces officials rushed there and apologized for it.

Officials also said that this happened because of a misunderstanding. An official posted at the Chennai airport said, “It is a case of miscommunication. The CISF sub-inspector must have thought that the minister had one laptop, not two. He asked them to put the laptop in the tray. Which the minister could not understand. The CISF officers were from North India and they could not understand Tamil properly.


This problem came because of not understanding Tamil. We have seen the footage and there was no issue during the security check. Let us tell you that the officer also had some debate with the minister. However, after this the senior officers reached there immediately and they also apologized to the minister. That CISF officer had also apologized.

Remind you that DMK MP Kanimozhi had told a similar incident with her on Twitter in August 2020. She had told that when she was present at Chennai airport to go to Delhi, she had asked a lady officer to speak in Tamil or English. On this, the lady officer asked him whether he was an Indian? Kanimozhi had raised the question that I want to know whether being an Indian has become equivalent to knowing Hindi. Later, the CISF also ordered an inquiry in this matter.
