DMK to scale down Teso conference

The DMK has decided to scale down the Eelam Tamil Rights Protection Conference organised by Tamil Eelam Supporters Organisation (Teso) to be held in the city from Sunday.

While a discussion on rehabilitation of Tamils in Sri Lanka will be held as scheduled in a city hotel, the main conference will be organised at the DMK headquarters itself, announced DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi, who is also the president of the Tamil Eelam Supporters Organisation (Teso).

Meanwhile, a single judge bench of the Madras High Court, appointed to hear a petition by J Anbazhagan (DMK) against the Chennai police commissioner’s order refusing Teso the permission to hold the conference at the YMCA ground, directed that the matter be placed before the Chief Justice. 

Justice N Paul Vasanthakumar said it will not be proper for the court to consider the petition.
