He said that former Tamil Nadu Fisheries Minister and senior AIADMK leader, D. Jayakumar, has also responded to the DVAC raids at his place.

Velumani said, “I was supposed to reach Tuticorin on Tuesday afternoon, stay overnight and offer prayers at the temple before returning to Chennai on Wednesday. But due to the situation on Tuesday, I was not able to travel and hence I reached here today.”
