VCK-activists

Activists of the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) on Thursday held a demonstration in front of the head post office demanding withdrawal of cases against party Chief Thol Thirumavalavan. VCK leader Su Paavaanan had submitted a memorandum on Wednesday to Lieutenant Governor Virendra Kataria demanding the same.

The VCK cadre, led by Su Pavaanan, staged the protest charging that police were acting in a biased manner and false cases were ‘foisted’ against Thirumavalavan.

Addressing the agitators, Su Paavaanan said Thirumavalavan did not speak anything derogatory against a particular community.

He charged that police were acting in a partisan manner at the behest of Chief Minister N Rangasamy, who is handling the home portfolio. Paavaanan claimed that the police had registered cases against Thirumavalavan days after the public function where the VCK chief had spoken.

Paavaanan claimed that VCK had filed complaints with the police after the Ambedkar statues at Abishegapakkam, Pathukannu, Thuthipet were damaged by miscreants. But police did not take any steps to arrest the real culprits involved in it, he said and claimed that police were only acting against Dalits.

It might be recalled that police registered cases under six different sections of IPC against Thirumavalavan and Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) and Vanniyar Sangam leader Kaduvetti Guru for inciting violence through their inflammatory speech at a recent function here to conde-

mn the damaging of Ambedkar statue. The police also filed case against PMK candidate RKR Anantharaman.
