Chennai: Tamil Nadu Police on Sunday filed a case against DMK working president MK Stalin and other party workers in Guindy for staging a protest in front of Governor Banwarilal Purohit's residence.
On Saturday, the DMK leader was detained while he was protesting against Purohit. The DMK working chief led the party worker's rally to the office of Governor Purohit in Chennai.
Stalin was protesting against the arrest of DMK party cadres at Namakkal while accusing the Governor of acting against the principles of federalism. "The protest is against Governor's interference in a federal structure," Stalin had said.
As many as 192 DMK cadres were detained in Trichy on Friday 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 had 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.
