‘It was aimed at disciplining the youth who were spoiling their lives’
Hindu Munnani on Monday told the Madras High Court that it was promoting the annual Vinayaka Chaturthi processions, which was once famous only in Maharashtra, in a big way in the State to streamline wayward youngsters and get them involved in religious activities.
The submission was made during the hearing of a public interest litigation petition filed by K. Gopinath, 45, of Tiruppur, seeking a direction to the Collector and Corporation Commissioner for the removal of all unauthorised flag poles erected by the Hindu Munnani in public places.
Objecting to such a plea made by the litigant without including it as a respondent, Hindu Munnani’s State president C. Subramaniam alias Kadaiyeeswara Subramaniam sought to be included.Advertising
