The TN Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Amaippusara Matrum Kattumaana and Meenpidi Thoililar Padukappu Peravai have moved the Madras High Court to implead it as a party in an earlier writ petition, based on which the High Court granted an interim injunction on January 29 this year.

The January 29 order directed the Chennai Corporation not to allow any unauthorised hawkers to operate on the sands of Marina beach.
