On Friday, nearly 192 DMK cadres were detained in Trichy while they were holding a black-flag protest against the Governor.
"DMK has a history of showing black flags to many leaders, including Indira Gandhi, but never were cadres arrested. We want the Governor to resign," he added.
Stalin has been demanding the Purohit's resignation for the last three months. In April this year, the DMK working president wanted Tamil Nadu Governor to step down from his post.
