COIMBATORE: Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhakam (AMMK) founder T.T.V Dhinakaran on Wednesday held the Tamil Nadu Government responsible for the violent incidents at Chepauk in Chennai during the IPL match.
Police had attacked and registered cases against those who were agitating in a democratic way against hosting IPL match in Chennai, Dhinakaran told reporters here.
Holding the State Government responsible for the police attack by instigating them, Dhinakaran said former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa had once stopped a match to be held in Chennai. “The present Tamil Nadu Government is totally supporting the Centre on the issue,” he said.
Though his party welcomed the agitation for the welfare and benefit of the State, but opposed in taking law into their hands, he said.
There was nothing wrong in waving black flags against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as decided by various political parties, as he was working against the welfare of the State.
Stating that AIADMK founder M.G. Ramachandran had not named his political heir, but Jayalalithaa rose to the position and minds of the people by protecting the party, Dhinakaran said that though Jayalalithaa had also not named him as the political heir, 90 per cent of the party workers were behind him.
