Cuddalore: This is weird and strange at the same time. Tamil channels broke the news that TN Governor barged into a women's toilet when a woman was taking a bath in Cuddalore during his official visit last Friday. Governor's office called the news reports as incorrect and with malicious intent. The office clarified he entered the toilet only after making sure no one was using it.
The Governor’s recent visit to Cuddalore was ensuring if the toilets built under Swachh Bharat were made as per the government's directives.
The mother of the woman in news told news channels that police personnel barged into toilet and that her daughter quickly put on clothes and went inside. Governor and collector all came and saw. She added that her daughter was taking a bath when cops barged in and she had put on clothes quickly.
A statement issued by the Raj Bhavan said TV channels must broadcast reports after due verification. Even the district administration issued a Press Release in the regard.
They stated that he reached the spot after it was made sure that the toilet was empty. The Honorable Governor proceeded to the house behind a Lady District Revenue Officer and the District Collector who had made all the arrangements. After making sure that the toilet which had been constructed was empty, the Collector followed the Lady DRO to the spot and then he was followed by the Governor.
