CHENNAI:  A plea has been made by a journalist in the Madras High Court for a direction to the police to launch criminal proceedings against DMDK leader Vijayakant for his behaviour while addressing mediapersons in the City on December 27 last year.

“Vijaykanth, an actor-turned-politician, doesn’t know how to behave in public. His derogatory words, used in an uncivilised manner and the act of spitting at the journalists are condemnable. He spat at the society. And he is unfit to be the Leader of the Opposition,” G Devarajan, a journalist residing in Sembium, submitted in his criminal original petition, filed in the Madras High Court on Tuesday.

Vijaykanth wants the media to advertise his films, to help him win public elections and to sustain himself in politics. But he does not know how to show minimum respect for the media and it is sorrowful that he is the Leader of the Opposition in Tamil Nadu, petitioner contended.

Sembium lodged an online complaint on December 28 and had sent the copy of the complaint by speed post to police authorities without any action taken. Hence, the present petition for a direction to them to register a case on his complaint, hold a probeand to punish Vijayakant.
