PMK youth wing president and Rajya Sabha MP Anbumani Ramadoss has urged the Tamil Nadu government to remove a chapter that explains integers using a rummy game with decks of cards in the mathematics syllabus for Class VI students of the Tamil Nadu state board.

ஆன்லைன் ரம்மி ஆட்டம் இளைய சமுதாயத்தை சீரழித்து தற்கொலைக்கும், கொலைகளுக்கும் வழி வகுத்துக் கொண்டிருக்கும் சூழலில், இந்த பாடம் சீரழிவை மேலும் அதிகரிக்கச் செய்யும். மானவர்களுக்கு நன்மையை போதிக்க வேண்டிய பாடநூல்கள் தீமையை போதிக்கக்கூடாது!(3/4)

In a series of tweets, the MP demanded the government to print new textbooks without reference to rummy for the upcoming academic year. He said textbooks must teach good and not evil. 

In December, the Former Union Minister for Health in a series of tweets said that suicides have considerably decreased when the AIDMK led government enacted an online gaming ban law. The politician said suicides are on raise again after the Madras High Court  law struck down the law as being unconstitutional in August last year.

The Tamil Nadu government has filed a petition with the Supreme Court challenging the decision of the Madras High Court which is yet to be heard. 

The DMK government last month, said it is committed to banning online gambling and that all efforts are on to invoke the existing laws to serve the purpose. The earlier AIADMK government had enacted a gaming ban law that prohibited all gaming for stakes.

 Ever since the decision of the High Court the opposition has been demanding the government to enact a fresh law. Chief Minister MK Stalin was fully aware of the evils of online gambling that destroyed several families, state Law Minister S Regupathy said in the assembly. The previous AIADMK government had promulgated an ordinance to ban online gambling "in a hurry" leading to the Madras High Court striking it down, he claimed. Earlier there were also reports that the government may enact a new law.
