I regret: DMK MP apologizes for 'Gaumutra' remark in Parliament
Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) MP DNV Senthil Kumar on Wednesday withdrew his controversial statement calling Hindi heartland "Gaumutra (cow urine) states" in Parliament. He also apologized in the Lok Sabha for "inadvertently" hurting the sentiments of the House members and sections of the people. This comes after the House witnessed uproar over his comments, especially from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MPs. Earlier, DMK chief and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin also reprimanded him for his comments.
