The Tamil Nadu police (TN Police) told the Madras High Court on Monday that police officers have been instructed to grant the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) permission for its State-wide route march on November 6, if there are no law and order issues in areas under their respective jurisdictions. .Senior counsel NR Elango told single-judge Justice GK Ilanthiraiyan that the TN Director General of Police (DGP) issued a circular on October 29 instructing all Police Commissioners and Superintendents of Police across the State to assess the prevailing law and order situation in their areas and grant RSS the permission for the march if they deemed it fit..The counsel for the RSS, however, opposed the circular saying that it diluted a previous order of the High Court that had given a categorical direction to the State police to grant permission for a route march led by a musical procession. They argued that the State was trying to dilute the court's order.The State police however, said that it would not even "dream of diluting the court's order." "It is just that the law and order situation in each district is different so the local SPs have been asked to take independent decisions," Elango said. Justice Ilanthiraiyan accepted the State's submission and adjourned further hearing in the matter to November 2. On September 30, Justice Ilanthiraiyan had directed the TN police to permit the RSS march on November 6 after the police rejected the organisation's original request for permission for such march on October 2, citing threats to the law and order situation in the state. Justice Ilanthiraiyan had said at the time that if the police failed to grant such permission, the Court will be forced to initiate contempt of court proceedings. Senior counsel S Prabakaran, G Rajagopal, and NL Rajah appeared for the petitioners.Senior counsel NR Elango and state public prosecutor Hasan Mohammad Jinnah appeared for the TN police.
