The minister in the video has been identified as R Kanagaraj, who is an AIADMK MLA.
In the video, the MLA is seen distributing money while another worker standing next to him can be seen counting Rs 2000 notes. In the background, one can see stacks of packed liquor boxes.
R Kanagaraj refuted the claims and said that he was distributing packed lunches in liquor cartons for party workers. The cash was for their commute.
