Supreme Court gives green signal to RSS rallies in Tamil Nadu

Amaravati: The Supreme Court on Tuesday gave a green signal to organize rallies of the Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh (RSS) in Tamil Nadu. A Supreme Court bench comprising Justices V. Ramasubramanian and Panjak Mithal dismissed a petition filed by the (MK Stalin) DMK government challenging the Madras High Court verdict on RSS rallies in the state. In October last year, the RSS had asked the Tamil Nadu government to allow rallies to be held to celebrate Gandhi’s birth anniversary on the occasion of 75 years of independence. The Tamil Nadu government refused permission for these rallies citing the threat of attacks from the banned ‘Popular Front of India’. RSS approached the Madras High Court. In November last year, the High Court had given permission to the RSS rallies on certain conditions. RSS went to the Division Bench on this ruling as well, and the Division Bench ruled on February 10 this year, allowing them to hold rallies without any conditions. Stalin’s government went to the Supreme Court against this verdict. They said that they are not completely opposed to the rallies and they are not allowing the street rallies only with the warnings of the intelligence agencies. On Tuesday, the Supreme Court, the Madras High Court, dismissed the petition of the Stalin government. This paved the way for organizing RSS rallies in Tamil Nadu.
