DPA urges Governor to drop proceedings

Written by: Staff

Chennai, May 9 (UNI) A delegation of DMK-led Democratic Progressive Alliance (DPA) leaders tonight urged Tamil Nadu Governor S S Barnala to direct the authorities to drop the criminal case registered against PMK founder leader Dr S Ramadoss and his son and Union Health Minister Dr Anbumani Ramadoss, among others, in connection with a murder case.

The delegation, led by DMK Treasurer Arcot N Veerasamy, in a memorandum submitted to the governor, said one person was murdered near the State Education Minister C Ve Shanmugam's residence at Tindivanam last night and based on a complaint given by the Minister, the police registered the case.

They said it was evident that the Minister had given the false complaint under the instructions of Chief Minsiter J Jayalalithaa as she had been ''perplexed by fear of defeat in the assembly elections.'' The Minister had also coerced the police to register the case, even though the facts were contrary to the contents of the complaint, they alleged. ''The Minister has acted with ulterior motives, only to damage the image and reputation of Dr Ramadoss and his family members,'' they alleged.

The complaint on a bare perusal, showed that it was given out of political vindictiveness, they said and requested the Governor ''to issue appropriate directions to the concerened authorities, not to act upon the false complaint and to drop all further proceedings thereupon.'' The signatories of the memorandum included Mr Veerasamy, TNCC President M Krishnasamy, PMK President G K Mani and MPs C Kuppusami, Dr R Senthil, A K Murthi, CPI leader C Mahendran and former TNCC President Era Anbarasu.
