In the lead-up to the public meeting scheduled to be addressed by DMK treasurer and former Deputy Chief Minister M.K.Stalin here on June 30, AIADMK councillors of the Madurai Corporation have called for prohibitory orders to be clamped on the DMK leader.

They urged Mayor V.V.Rajan Chellappa not to allow Mr.Stalin’s meeting within Corporation limits as he had used derogatory language against Chief Minister Jayalalithaa while addressing DMK cadre at Thiruppalai here on June 5.

When P.Salaimuthu, AIADMK Councillor and South Zone chairman, raised the issue at the Council meeting on Wednesday, he was supported by other members who pressed for a Council resolution denying permission to Mr.Stalin to address the meeting.

The Mayor assured the councillors that their demand would be taken up with the police. “The Corporation does not have the right to allow, or deny permission to, the holding of a political meeting. However, we will take your views to the police because Mr.Stalin spoke ill of the Chief Minister and Madurai Corporation at his last meeting,” Mr. Chellappa told the Councillors.

The ruling party councillors also took umbrage at the DMK councillors complaining about the Mayor when they met Collector Anshul Mishra on Monday.
