Official sources said the Ministry has no plans to reply the letter written by Maran where he had said his company was never involved in any anti-national or criminal activity and there was no justification for refusal of the clearance to his television channels.

Home Ministry officials were also suspecting that the Sun Network may try to cite the relief the company got from the Madras High Court after the Centre withdrew the Multi System Operator licence for Kal Cables owned by the Maran families.

However, the union government yesterday filed an appeal in the Madras High Court challenging relief to Multi System Operator, Kal Cables by a single judge of the court.

With his 33 TV channels staring at closure, Kalanithi Maran wrote a letter to Rajnath Singh asking him to intervene on the issue of refusal of security clearance.
