MHC disposed of a plea against DMK’s anti NEET campaign

The Chief Justice of the Madras High Court (MHC) observed that any party has the right to agitate against what they oppose and disposed of the petition against the anti-NEET signature campaign being driven by DMK as the petitioner withdrew his plea.

A litigant M L Ravi, Desiya Makkal Sakthi Katchi, president filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking to restrain the school education department from allowing students and teachers to participate in the anti-NEET campaign launched by the Sports minister and DMK youth wing secretary Udhayanidhi Stalin.

The case was listed before the first division bench of the MHC comprising Chief Justice SV Gangapurwala and Justice D Bharatha Chakravarthy.

The bench questioned the petitioner on how he was affected by the signature campaign driven by DMK and observed that any party can agitate against something that they find to be opposed.
