The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

DMK work­ing pres­i­dent MK Stalin on Sun­day said dis­play­ing por­trait of a per­son who has been de­clared an ac­cused by Supreme Court in gov­ern­ment of­fices will only set a “wrong prece­dence”.

The state­ment comes a day af­ter he de­manded re­moval of por­traits of late party supremo Jay­alalithaa from gov­ern­ment of­fices, say­ing she was con­victed in an as­sets case. Rebel AIADMK leader and for­mer Tamil Nadu chief min­is­ter O Pan­neer­sel­vam had on Satur­day slammed Stalin for his de­mand, which he said smacked of “po­lit­i­cal in­de­cency”. In his re­sponse to Pan­neer­sel­vam, Stalin said, “DMK only says that us­ing a pic­ture or a por­trait of per­son who has been ac­cused by Supreme Court in Gov­ern­ment of­fices would set a wrong prece­dence.”
