Karunanidhi shifts TESO meet to DMK headquarters

DMK chief M Karunanidhi has announced that the Tamil Eelam Supporters Organisation meet would be held at the party headquarters, if there were any problems in holding it at the YMCA Grounds at Royapettah, Chennai.
“If the ban remains, the conference will be held at Anna Arivalayam at 4pm,” he said in a statement.
It came soon after the Madras high court division bench decided to meet today to take up the party’s petition against the denial of permission to hold the meet at YMCA Grounds, Times of India reports.
Earlier in the day, Justice N Paul Vasanthakumar heard high-voltage arguments of advocate-general A Navaneethakrishnan and senior advocate P Wilson, who represented the organizers of the conference, for about 90 minutes before citing a legal and technical factor that disallowed a single judge from hearing the case.
He referred the matter to the Chief Justice to be posted before a division bench.
It was only after 8pm that the high court registry informed the parties that the matter would be heard by a division bench, comprising Justice Elipe Dharma Rao and Justice M Venugopal.
The Indian ministry of external affairs on Saturday informed the organisers of Teso that it had no objection to using the word ‘Eelam’ in the title of the conference.
In a communication to Teso secretary Hasan Mohammed Jinnah, external affairs coordination division deputy secretary R K Nagpal said: “The organisers are advised to ensure that the conference does not issue any declaration or outcome that calls into question in any manner the sovereignty, territorial integrity and unity of any foreign country with whom India has diplomatic relations.”

Karunanidhi said deliberations on protection of right to life and livelihood of Eelam Tamils to be held in a city hotel this morning will take place as scheduled.
“Resolutions to be passed at the Teso conference will be discussed and given final touches during this conclave,” he said.
