Following tension between AIADMK and DMDK members over removing of DMDK banners, Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Monday asked party members not to protest against Vijayakanth.  

She said in her statement, “I ask party members not to indulge in activities like burning Vijayakanth’s posters and banners, instead concentrate on serving the people.  The actions of DMDK members will be taken care by the law.”

She also said that the people will teach a lesson to the DMDK leader Vijayakanth in the coming Assembly elections in 2016.

On Monday, during a protest demonstration near head post office led by DMDK leader Vijayakanth, he saw his portrait hanging from the roof of a bus shelter and showed displeasure over it. Immediately, a DMDK cadre climbed up the shelter and covered Jayalalithaa’s portrait with Vijayakanth’s portrait.

When that poster was put up, Vijayakanth asked cadres to remove Jayalalithaa’s picture from the adjacent spot, which his followers promptly did to the cheers of the crowd.

Later, AIADMK members came and removed all the banners put up by DMDK cadres which led to a clash between the members of both the parties and five DMDK members were injured.
