Chennai, Apr 20 (ANI): Journalists staged a protest outside the state office of the BJP on Friday against party leader S Ve Shekhar's derogatory social media post on women scribes. Shekhar later deleted his post claiming that he had forwarded the post without going through it. Earlier, a complaint was also filed against the leader in Chennai. Shekher's objectionable comment came after Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit apologised to a woman journalist for patting her cheek during a press conference in Chennai. However, the BJP leader later apologised on his comment and said, "I had posted it without reading the message. It was removed immediately after my friend pointed it out. If I had hurt anyone, it was not on purpose and I extend my heartfelt apology".
