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
