The State president of Popular Front Of India State (PFI) Mohamed Shaik Ansari on Wednesday said the ‘illegal and undemocratic ban’ on the organisation would be fought in the courts of law. 

In a statement, Mr. Ansari said, “It has been announced that the Popular Front of India has been banned in India. This illegal and undemocratic ban will be challenged legally by us.” He added that the organisation would stop all the activities that it had been carrying out in the State, following the ban.

Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi founder and Chidambaram MP, Thol. Thirumavalavan said Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the ideological arm of the BJP, should also be banned for its activities.
