DMK Strongly Condemns the Act of A&N Police for Removing The Party Flag While Stalin Was in Town

Port Blair, Oct. 29: The DMK Party has strongly condemned the act of A&N Police for having removed their party’s flags from inside the city when their leader Shri MK Stalin also the former Dy. Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu was in town.

Lodging their protest, the State Organiser DMK, Shri A.R. Marudhavaanan in a letter to the Director General of Police mentioned that the party has been singled out by the Police Department, which has put the party members in great pain and anger.

Marudhavaanan explained that it has been a practice of not only the DMK but all the political parties to receive their party dignitaries by planting party flags alongside roads leading to the Airport and their place of stay. The way our party have been singled out in this manner is condemnable as it was done when the leader was present in Port Blair.

“The Administration could have waited for at least two more days before putting us in shame by removing our party flags”, said the State Organiser.

Condemning the act the State Organiser also alleged that the DMK feels that the Administration in connivance with the ruling party has enacted this degradable act to defame the party and the visiting leader MK Stalin.

Marudhavaanan on behalf of the party while demanding an explanation from the Director General of Police on the incident, said that such ill conceived acts of your Department will only strengthen our party and cadres.
