Chennai:  A video of a woman confronting a minister when he visited a government hospital in Tuticorin district on Sunday to meet those injured during anti-Sterlite protests there last week and asking him why he cannot announce its closure, has gone viral on social media.

The woman's son is being treated at the hospital.

As soon as Information and Publicity Minister 'Kadambur' Raju along with District Collector Sandip Nanduri came near her son's bed, the woman demands to know why he cannot announce that the factory would be permanently closed.

Pointing to the wound on her son's head, she asks him what he would have done if his son had sustained such an injury.
