Former Minister for Food in the state of Tamil Nadu and DMK leader E V Velu is on the spotlight. Recently a group of DMK leaders headed by E V Velu assembled in the memorial of DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi at marina beach, to sing bhajan songs in praise of him.
This move was not well received by several Facebook and Twitter users as DMK has been a party which has openly ridiculed all forms of Hindu practices in the name of rationalism. Earlier to this, lyricist and author Vairamuthu, who shares a very close ideological rapport with M Karunanidhi was seen offering milk, fruits and flowers to the memorial. This move of Vairamuthu was ridiculed by many.

If you offer milk to God will your God come & drink the milk – karunanidhi
Now DMK party men are offering fruits to karunanidhi's samadhi : will karunanidhi come from the grave and eat the fruits ? pic.twitter.com/DPwy3eZHkO

On all these occasions, Social Media users have not only expressed their unhappiness over the hypocrisy of DMK leaders, they have gone one step ahead to ridicule them by sharing their own edited versions of the same video.
