Madras High Court on Friday reserved orders on a petition seeking a direction to DGP, and Superintendent of Police, Kancheepuram not to grant permission for a public meeting on February 8 in which the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is going to participate.
On a petition filed by one Gowthama Sannah, the First Bench, comprising Chief Justice R.K.Agrawal and Justice K.Ravichandra Babu after hearing the arguments of counsel for the petitioner, said it was reserving its orders.
The petitioner alleged that Modi’s conduct and activity in the recent past was detrimental to the interest of general public not only in Tamil Nadu but all over the country.
BJP and its Prime Ministerial candidate are convening public meetings and rallies for which police were taking activists of other political parties into preventive custody on suspicion thereby infringing on the fundamental right of the people.
The petitioner said BJP was going to hold the meeting at Vandalur and the area being thickly populated, there is likelihood of breach of peace and law and order problem maybe created.
The petitioner said he has already given representation to the authorities concerned not to give permission to hold the meeting at Vandalur but he has not received any response and hence he moved the court.
Former Apple executive and Dwarka MLA Adarsh Shastri has also been included in the spokespersons’ list.
