CHENNAI: Modifying its order issued a few hours ago, a division Bench of Madras High Court said late in the evening on Friday that the PMK could hold its State-level conference at VGP Thidal, Kilaambakkam on Vandalur-Urapakkam GST Road in Kanchipuram district on February 27, subject to conditions.

The Bench of justices K K Sasidharan and M Venugopal said they were permitting the PMK to hold the meet on February 27 by using the land, subject to payment of `35 lakhs towards license fee.

The demand draft for `35 lakhs should be deposited with the Registrar General (RG) of the High Court by 2 p.m. on February 15. The sum should be deposited by the RG in the Indian Bank, High Court Branch, in an interest bearing account on the credit of a writ appeal on the issue pending before the High Court.

The petitioner should remove the stage and marquee and other fixtures by 5 pm on February 28 and restore the land to its original state and vacate it. It was open to the Vandalur DSP to impose reasonable conditions to ensure law and order.

The VGP Housing (P) Ltd. was granted time till 4 pm on February 25 to pay `1 lakh as cost to the DSP, as indicated in the earlier judgment. The directions contained in the earlier verdict of the court in the afternoon was modified to the extent indicated above, the Bench said.

PMK Defers Meet to February 27

Chennai: The PMK has postponed its State-level conference scheduled for February 14 to February 27. In a statement here, PMK founder S Ramadoss said though the Madras High Court had allowed the conference at Vandalur on February 14, the party was not in a position to complete the works for the conference as there was a court stay on doing so.  Now that the court had allowed the conference on February 27, it would take place on that day, he added.
