Chennai: DMK leader MK Stalin was in the midst of a controversy today after a video showed him allegedly slapping a fellow passenger on board a metro train here.
"I did not slap him, I only gestured him to move away from a woman whose feet was being trampled by the passenger. My hand (inadvertently) touched his face while gesturing," Stalin told PTI when asked on the issue.

Video footages of Stalin allegedly slapping a passenger in a metro train yesterday went viral today with Tamil Nadu
Chief Minister Jayalalithaa condemning the incident.
"This is strongly condemnable, such an uncivilised behaviour is unbecoming of an MLA," the AIADMK supremo said in
a statement. She also charged that Stalin travelled in the train only for "vain publicity and to seek political mileage."
Yesterday, besides Stalin, DMDK chief Vijayakanth too took a ride in the newly launched Chennai Metro. Both Stalin
and Vijayakanth said that the project was initiated by the previous DMK regime.
