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.
