Accusing the government of negligence leading to the death of the woman, Stalin tweeted, "Subashree has died due to negligence of the government, inefficient police officers. The illegal banners have taken yet another life. My deepest condolences to her family."

 
"How many more lives will be lost to the power-hungry and anarchist rule?", he added.

 
The deceased identified as Subashree was hit by a water tanker when a banner erected by the AIADMK party allegedly fell on her while she was riding a two-wheeler on Thursday.
