Hu­man chain stir on April 23

The Hindu - - TAMIL NADU - Spe­cial Cor­re­spon­dent

Op­po­si­tion par­ties led by the DMK will or­gan­ise a hu­man chain in all district head­quar­ters on April 23 to press the Cen­tre to form the Cau­very Man­age­ment Board (CMB).

A res­o­lu­tion adopted in the all-party meet­ing held at the Anna Ari­valayam also re­called the fi­nal award of the Cau­very Tri­bunal that stated “the de­ci­sion of the Tri­bunal, af­ter its pub­li­ca­tion in the Of­fi­cial Gazette by the Cen­tral gov­ern­ment, shall have the same force as an or­der or de­cree of the Supreme Court.”

The res­o­lu­tion said the State gov­ern­ment should take le­gal mea­sures to en­sure for­ma­tion of the CMB. “While the Cen­tral gov­ern­ment has filed a pe­ti­tion seek­ing clar­i­fi­ca­tion on the scheme, the State gov­ern­ment re­mains a silent spec­ta­tor as its only goal is to re­main in power. A hu­man chain will be held to con­demn the State gov­ern­ment and bring pres­sure to bear on the Cen­tre,” the res­o­lu­tion said.
