CHENNAI: THE Madras High Court has reserved orders on a plea from the DMK legal wing to permit the party working president MK Stalin to visit water bodies in the State without any hindrance.

Justice M Duraiswamy reserved the orders after listening to the DMK senior counsel R Shanmugasundaram and the Additional Advocate-General STS Moorthy on Tuesday.

Moorthy submitted that Stalin was not prevented by police as he was moving freely throughout the State. What was opposed was his visit to Kacharyankuttai, as the de-silting work was done only by the Government under Kudimaramathu scheme and not by the DMK cadre.

If the prayer to allow him to visit Kacharyankuttai was allowed, then the DMK would claim credit for doing the work.  He was prevented on July 27 just because there was a law and order problem in the area. Several buses were damaged. The situation was not conducive then, he added.

The judge, however, opined that there could not be a total ban. Maybe the number of persons accompanying the leader could be restricted, he added and reserved his orders.
