CHENNAI: Charging ruling AIADMK with targeting former DMK ministers and functionaries, the party has sought constitution of a high-level committee by Madras High Court to go into 'false and fabricated' complaints of land grabbing being filed against its partymen.
DMK Legal Wing Secretary R S Bharathi in a petition filed in the High Court, also sought an interim injunction to restrain the government, DGP, their officers and others from arresting DMK members 'on false accusations of land grabbing' pending disposal of the petition and from registering 'false cases.'
Charging AIADMK with having an 'inimical' attitude against DMK and 'to wreck vengeance on DMK', Bharathi alleged that the Jayalalithaa government was 'calculative taking steps to tarnish DMK's image through government agencies by utilising government machinery such as the police department.
DMK alleged that government officials and DGP have directed District Superintendents of Police to open up exclusive separate cells district headquarters to receive complaints of land grabbing against its leaders and members, specifically identifying periods of complaints between 2006 and 2011, the period during which the party ruled the state.
"It is shocking that in its enthusiasm to take revenge on DMK party it (ruling AIADMK) constituted and formed 39 anti land Grabbing Special Cells with a financial commitment of Rs 27,71,11,658,' the petition said adding that 'tax payers money is sought to be squandered by targeting the opposition party'.
DMK alleged that ever since the Jayalalithaa government assumed office on May 16 last it has been targeting DMK through its officers and police.
Bharathi claimed that Jayalalithaa, in her capacity as Chief Minister, had given an official statement that an "Anti Land Grabbing Special Cell' would be formed to receive complaints relating to the 2006-11 period and that the government had issued an order on July 28 in this connection.
