AIADMK leaves TN meeting because of “worsening law and order,” Stalin replies
The AIADMK legislators wore black shirts in the house and Palaniswami lashed out at the DMK government, saying that even police officers were not safe in the state. Citing the example of a sexual assault of a female agent allegedly committed by DMK leaders during a public party program, he said that if a female agent was not safe in the state, how would the situation of women in Tamil Nadu be?
He also said that the state went through a bad phase during the DMK rule and people live in constant fear.
Prime Minister MK Stalin, in response to the allegations, said that an FIR was immediately registered under IPCs Sections 353 and 354 and Section 4 of the Tamil Nadu Prohibition of Harassment of Women Act, 1998 in relation to the sexual assault of the female agent.
He also said that an investigation has been launched and the two local leaders of the DMK, Praveenkumar and Ekambaram, were arrested on January 3 and taken into custody themselves the next day.
The Chief Minister also said that during the AIADMK regime, the state had witnessed police shootings and deaths during that regime. He also said that two female police officers in the rank of Superintendents had to run from the pole to the police to file a complaint.
