CHENNAI / SALEM: Condemning the latest order of Salem Collector, prohibiting VCK volunteers from hiring rented vehicles to attend the party’s conference on Right to Education on Sunday, party president Thol Thirumavalavan said this directive was intended to nullify the HC order. Hence, the party would file a contempt plea against the Collector.

In a media release here, he called upon the cadre to travel in government buses and trains to reach the venue. He recalled that the court, on Thursday had rejected the plea of the public prosecutor to prohibit use of hired vehicles. In this circumstance the Collector clamping a ban on the party to hire vehicles was a clear case of contempt. Meanwhile, Thirumavalavan requested the party cadre to maintain discipline and make the conclave a grand success.

Earlier, in Salem, the PMK submitted a petition to the SP urging him to ban the VCK conference on Sunday.

The PMK petiton submitted by R Arul, state youth wing secretary of the party, said that the meeting venue was close to several pockets, which  have thick population of other caste people, including Vanniyars reside. “Like Marakkanam and Dharamapuri, the VCK has allegedly planned to attack other caste people at these places.”
