The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has moved the Madras High Court initiating contempt proceedings against the state government for its refusal to grant permission for a route march that the party intends to conduct on October 2nd.

Earlier, the High Court had directed the authorities to grant permission for the same before the 28th of September.

Senior Counsel Prabhakaran requested for an early hearing today. Justice GK Ilanthiraiyan stated that if the petition has been numbered, it will be heard tomorrow.

Advocate Rabu Manohar had previously issued contempt notices to the Secretary of Home Department, the DGP, the Superintendent of Police (Thiruvallur) and the Inspector of Police (Thiruvallur). The contempt notice stated that even though the court had issued positive directions on 22nd September, the respondents had the audacity to overrule the High Court order and reject the permission.

It was also stated that conducting route march was a Constitutional right of the party and the Respondents could not deny it nor could they impose any new conditions in ignorance of the court order. They thus sought for a withdrawal of the order passed by the Inspector of Police on 27th September denying permission for route march.

The State government has also approached the Madras High Court seeking review of the order passed on 22nd September.
