Chennai Dec 12 (PTI) A case has been registered against

DMK deputy general secretary A Raja for his provocative

remarks against late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa

and incumbent K Palaniswami following a complaint from the

AIADMK, police said on Saturday.

Quoting a recent press conference by the former union

minister, an office-bearer of the AIADMK''s legal wing alleged

Raja made highly abusive remarks against his party''s late

supremo besides Palaniswami and requested action as per law.

The First Information Report was registered by the

Central Crime Branch under sections including giving

provocation with intent to cause riot, a senior officer said.

The development comes close on the heels of a slugfest

between the opposition DMK and ruling AIADMK in connection

with corruption allegations.

Raja had said recently that none from his party has

ever been convicted in any major corruption case.

Palaniswami hit back saying the 2G ''scam'' shamed the

entire nation and Raja was even lodged in the Tihar prison.PTI
