A Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Party
(VCK) poster was torn down in the Thirukkanur area, at the village
bus stand on Sunday night. The VCK men immediately took to the streets
and staged a road roko, blocking the traffic for more than three
hours. The shops in that area remained closed, fearing trouble,
for almost half the day.
The poster containing birthday wishes for their leader Thirumavalavan
was torn down by some miscreants during the night. Several police
personnel were deployed immediately following the incident, fearing
group clashes between party members.
Earlier this year, a similar incident had occurred when some miscreants
had torn down Thirumavalavan’s poster.
