Kochi: A ban on the proposed RSS march on Gandhi Jayanti day across Tamil Nadu by the state government overlooking court permission is likely to help the Sangh Parivar.
The government issuing the ban ignoring the Madras High Court’s permission will arm the BJP and similar outfits to take full advantage of the situation through rhetoric, media reports said.
The government’s decision might influence the people’s support to the DMK, which claims to govern the state on the path shown by social reformers Thiruvalluvar, E V Ramaswamy, popularly known as Periyar.
On the other hand, the High Court had banned use of sticks, weapons, slogans against any individual, caste, religion and banned organisations during the march.
The RSS has moved a contempt of court petition against the top officials challenging the ban, while the government has filed a counter petition in the Madras High Court seeking to review its order, the reports said.
Justifying its decision, the government claims that the march comes at a time of banning PFI and arrest of its leaders.
The government said that it has also not allowed permission to Left parties and others to form a human chain for “communal harmony” in the state on Gandhi Jayanti day on October 2.
