Chennai, Aug 29 (UNI) The Cable TV Operators in Madurai today alleged they received death threats and criminal intimidation from the new MSO, Royal Cable Vision (RCV), which had the backing of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi's elder son M K Azhagiri.
Talking to reporters here, Tamil Nadu Cable TV Owners and Consumers Welfare Association President T V Ramesh said RCV men were threatening the Cable TV operators to shift loyalty from the Sumangali Cable Vision to RCV.
''We cannot go back to Madurai as our life is not secure,'' he said claiming the police also refused to entertain complaints filed by the Association.
Faced with no options, the association members said they would seek the help of Opposition parties and threatened to stage a fast in front of Parliament in New Delhi if the government did not take steps to prevent threats and 'strong arm' tactics of RCV.
He claimed nearly 90 per cent of the Cable TV owners had switched allegiance to RCV in Madurai and those who continued with the SCV had to face the ire of DMK partymen.
