According to Indian Express, the post reads, “This ugly truth has come out through the complaints raised recently. These are the (derogatory word) women who have come out to question the Governor. Media people are the cheap, lowly, ugly, vulgar beings of Tamil Nadu. There are only a few exceptions. I respect only them. Otherwise, the whole of TN media is in a regressive path caught in the hands of criminals, rascals, blackmailers.”

The post further went on to say that “recent complaints show they (journalists) can’t become reporters or anchors without sleeping with big shots…Uneducated stupid ugly beings… largely in Tamil Nadu media. This woman is no exception.”

The 78-year-old governor had patted on the cheek of a woman journalist earlier this week during the conclusion of a press meet in Chennai, apparently to diplomatically avoid queries posed by her. The incident had triggered a furore with political parties, including the opposition DMK, calling for his removal as Tamil Nadu governor. Purohit later apologised to the woman scribe.

Shekher’s shared post also had some caustic references to the woman scribe whose cheek the governor patted.
