DMK runs for cover

DMKChennai: Taking the legal recourse to burgeoning land grabbing complaints against their leaders and functionaries, the DMK on Wednesday moved petitions with the HC and sought injunction against the Government Order (no-423) enabling the setting up of Anti-Land Grabbing Cells.

Besides they also sought constitution of a high-level committee to go into what it called ‘false and fabricated’ complaints of land grabbing filed against its partymen.

In a petition, DMK Legal Wing Secretary R S Bharathi sought an interim injunction seeking to restrain the government, Director General of Police (DGP), their officers and others from arresting DMK members on false accusations of  land grabbing pending disposal of the petition.

Bharathi, in his petition, said that the alleged offences against the DMK men were treated as a separate category and they were treated as a separate clan and were sought to be ill treated by the state govt and its officers.It was shocking that in its enthusiasm to take revenge on the DMK party, the ruling AIADMK government constituted 39 Anti Land Grabbing Special Cells with a financial commitment of `27.71 crore, Bharathi said in the petition.

In a similar but separate petition, DMK MP R Thamaraiselvan sought the quashing of the July 28 GO and an interim stay of proceedings pursuant to the GO till disposal of the petition.In the petition, Thamaraiselvan alleged that the GO had not been issued in public interest but was politically motivated to settle political vendetta.
