Chennai: The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam government in Tamil Nadu has denied permission for the ‘route march’ rallies of the Rashtriya Swayam Sevak (RSS) on October 2.

The rallies were scheduled to take place in 51 places across the state. The government has also denied permission for the communal harmony rally of the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi on October 2.

“At a time when the state government is taking all-out efforts to maintain law and order across the state apart from taking precautionary steps, permission has been denied to RSS and other organisations for taking out rallies and organising public meetings on October 2,” the government said in a statement.

Last week, the Madras High Court granted permission to the RSS to take processions on October 2, subject to certain conditions. The permission was given after hearing a batch of writ petitions filed by the RSS office-bearers.

This came under criticism from various quarters, particularly from Naam Tamilar Katchi leader Seeman. He said even during the regime of Edappadi K Palaniswami, permission was not given to RSS rallies in the state.
