Unable to secure permission from the Madras HC to conduct a photo-cum-video exhibition and a conference on the Sri Lankan Tamils’ issue, a consortium of college students here have planned to conduct the event at a private hall.

The students under the banner of ‘Federation of Students for the Freedom of Tamil Eelam’ said that they were left with no other option but to take a private hall on rent to hold the exhibition and the conference. The two-day event will be held on Saturday and Sunday at Nallayan Community Hall on Vincent Road.

The Coimbatore City Police had earlier denied permission to hold the event on VOC Grounds citing law and order reasons. “We have chosen a private place as no police permission is required. It is unfortunate that even for a forum to discuss ideas, the police have denied permission,” said a student organiser. The students said the photo-exhibition would start around 4 pm on Saturday followed by a conference in which leading Tamil thinkers and speakers will attend.
