Madras High Court on Friday rejected a plea from Nalini Sriharan and Ravichandran, both convicted in the former PM Rajiv Gandhi assassination case. They had pleaded for their release without even the consent of the State Governor. The High Courts do not have the power under Article 226 of the Constitution to do so, unlike the Supreme Court, the HC said.
K Palaniswami alleges that acts of vendetta politics are meant to divert public glare from the DMK’s inability to fulfill their tall poll promises. uring the newly formed DMK government’s tenure, state agencies have been probing graft cases against influential leaders of the AIADMK and the former ministers. MR Vijayabaskar and SP Velumani are among the ministers who were under the agencies’ scanner.
Panneerselvam said that the DMK had made over 500 poll promises and that it ended up getting just three percent more votes than the AIADMK. As per AIADMK, DMK President MK Stalin, his sister Kanimozhi and his son Udhayanidhi Stalin had promised that the party would cancel the NEET entrance exam for medical entrance after coming to power. AIADMK alleged that the DMK had done a volte-face after coming to power and is now asking students to prepare for the NEET exam.
