Chennai, February 7: Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit, who is facing the wrath of DMK cadre has clarified that he was here to serve the people of Tamil Nadu and not going anywhere for the next five years. He was speaking at the concluding ceremony of Shankara Netralaya’s Medical Research Foundation. On this occasion, the Tamil Nadu Governor hailed the contribution of Shankara Netralaya for their noble initiative and also appreciated the medical infrastructure and standard of clinical hygiene maintained by Shankara Netralaya.

According to media reports, a group of DMK supporters rushed to Krishnagiri toll Plaza and staged a protest against Purohit by showing black flags along the route of the Governor’s convoy. The principal opposition party has been continuously accusing Tamil Nadu Governor of interfering in state administration where disciplinary actions were orders against the reported DMK sympathizers.

As quoted by The Hindu, on Tuesday Purohit sacked Bharathiar University Vice-Chancellor A. Ganapathi who was under the scanner Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption for his alleged involvement in a graft case.
