A video of the legislator using foul language against a company executive and threatening to physically harm him has gone viral on social media. Later in the day, the CEO of Daejung Moparts private limited, Krishnamoorthy filed a complaint with the police with video evidence after which the MLA was booked.

Sharma had allegedly embezzled and siphoned off company funds, which was revealed in the forensic audit. The company has been in operation for more than four decades and has around 120 employees.

Meanwhile, state BJP president K Annamalai tweeted the viral video. "In the Dravidian model rule of the DMK, I wonder which is the bigger threat to people - law and order break down during DMK rule or Law and order due to the DMK rule,” he wrote.
