Madras HC to decide on DMK plea for TESO meet
Posted on: 07:54 AM IST Aug 12, 2012
Chennai: The Tamil Eelam Supporters Organisation (TESO) meeting is caught in a legal wrangle. The Madras High court will hear the plea on Sunday filed by the DMK against the police's denial to give TESO permission to hold its meeting at the YMCA grounds.
Sources say that if the court denies it, then the meeting could be held within the premises of the DMK headquarters.
This is the second time the TESO meet has faced a problem - with the MEA intially approving the meet only if the word Eelam was dropped.
However, in a change of stance, the MEA gave a go-ahead.
The entire meet is being seen as a desperate attempt by the DMK to assert itself as a champion of the Tamil cause in the hope of regaining its lost ground in Tamil Nadu.
