Chennai: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) was denied permission by the Tamil Nadu government to conduct its route march on October 2 in the state on Thursday. The Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) was also denied permission to conduct its counter-agitation on the same day.

According to a senior RSS leader, the government had told the organisation not to go ahead with its plan, citing law and order issues brought on by protests by some groups in the event that the RSS staged a route march on Gandhi Jayanthi.

“Our’s is a peaceful march and the Madras High Court has already granted permission. We will approach the issue legally,” a senior leader told PTI. The RSS had already issued a legal notice to State Home Secretary Phanindra Reddy, DGP C Sylendra Babu and Tiruvallur police inspector seeking to know why contempt proceedings should not be initiated against them for disobeying the court order.

The DMK government has also denied permission to allies VCK, CPI and CPI(M) to hold a human chain protest on October 2.
