AIADMK moves HC on "violation" of SC order
With a virtual bandh being observed in Tamil Nadu today despite the Supreme Court's stay, the opposition AIADMK made a special mention before the Madras High Court with regard to "violation" of the apex court order.
AIADMK legal advisor N Jothi, MP, made the mention before a bench comprisng Chief Justice A P Shah and Justice P Jyothimani, that the government did not operate public transport, despite the apex court order.
They had also engaged goons to threaten shop owners and commercial establishments to down their shutters, he contended.
The Bench said it would take up the matter at 1200 hrs.
Earlier, AIADMK legal wing secretary Manoj Pandian said the party would petition State Chief Secretary L K Tripathy on the alleged violation of the Supreme Court order.
The Supreme Court had yesterday restrained the ruling DMK front in Tamil Nadu from going ahead with the state-wide bandh on the Sethusamudram project issue.
