The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has issued a legal notice to top officials of the Tamil Nadu government, including the Home Secretary. In fact, the Tiruvallur police refused permission to the Sangh to organize a ‘root march’ on October 2. The union says that the Madras High Court has already ruled in its favor in this matter. RSS has issued a notice to the Tamil Nadu government for not allowing the ‘Root March’ despite the court’s order.
The saffron outfit issued legal notices to state home secretary Phanindra Reddy, DGP C Silendra Babu, local SP and city police inspector, asking why contempt proceedings should not be initiated against them for defying the court’s order. In his legal notice, RSS counsel B Rabu Manohar said that Justice GK Elanthiraiyan, in his September 22 order, had made it clear that none of these four would be allowed to ‘route march’ and imposed new conditions. does not have the right. He said that the officers of the state government cannot impose any condition other than those fixed by the High Court.
It was clearly stated in the order of the High Court that it is the constitutional right of the petitioners (RSS) to take out route marches and hold public meetings. The union, in its notice, said, “Therefore, it is the duty on the police to provide adequate security, and enable them to successfully complete the mission without any action. Rejection order passed by the Inspector (attached to Tiruvallur Town Police Station)”. Illegal and contemptuous in a way, as all three are parties before the High Court and are duty bound to ensure strict compliance of the order. Non-compliance of the order will amount to contempt.”
Manohar has called upon the four officers to withdraw the unconditional rejection orders and allow them to conduct route marches and hold a public meeting on October 2. Any failure will result in contempt proceedings before the High Court for willful disobedience.
