AIADMK holds protest in Madurai and Virudhunagar
MADURAI: Volunteers of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) staged a demonstration here on Monday demanding the resignation of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam Government following the allegations of tapping of phones of officials and politicians.
Addressing the volunteers, former Rajya Sabha MP, S. Muthumani, said that the DMK Government had lost its moral authority to continue in office.
Not only the telephones of leaders of Opposition parties were being tapped but also that of State officials, the former MP alleged.
The illegal act amounted to stifling of democracy, he said.
Stating that the former Chief Minister of Karnataka, Ramakrishna Hegde, had resigned in the past when a similar allegation was made against his Government, he wanted Mr. Karunanidhi to follow suit.
The party urban district secretary, K. Raju, and party leaders V. V. Rajan Chellappa, A.K. Bose, M.S. Pandiyan, Valarmathi Jebaraj, and A.M. Paramasivam participated.
The former MP, S. Gokula Indira, led the party cadres in the protest here on Monday. The cadres demanded the DMK Government’s resignation over the phone-tapping allegation.
The district secretary, K.K. Sivasamy, Virudhunagar town secretary, S. Ashokan, MGR youth wing secretary, K.T. Rajendra Balaji, and women’s wing secretary, Sakthi Konthandam, were among those who participated.
