Chennai: DMK members of the Tamil Nadu assembly on Wednesday met Governor K Rosaiah and alleged that the AIADMK government was "violating" fundamental rights, human rights and directives of the Supreme Court and wanted him to take "appropriate action".

In their 12-page memorandum, the members charged that the AIADMK government "has conspired with certain vested-groups, which have been hostile to the DMK, due to its Dravidian origin and ideals, principles of social reform and Tamil renaissance".

Referring to the Jayalalithaa government's crackdown on the land grabbing cases in the State between 2006 and 2011, they charged it was "only a ruse to foist cases against DMK functionaries and destroy the image of the party in the eyes of the public".

They alleged that the State administration has given "secret instructions to the police to launch ulterior criminal action against the functionaries of the DMK by top priority" in the complaints relating to them.

Alleging that cases are being fabricated against its partymen only after arrest, they termed it a "violation of human rights," since the arrests were made "without proper arrest memo and produced before the Magisrate without proper documents".

They also alleged that in contravention of the guidelines of the Supreme Court to incarcerate arrested persons only in prisons nearer to their home towns, the arrested DMK functionaries were not detained in the jurisdictional prisons and are "purposely" lodged in far off prisons.

Earlier, all the DMK members staged a walkout from the assembly, led by senior party leader Duraimurugan, just after the Speaker took his Chair. They did not explain the reason behind the walkout.
