DMK leader M K Stalin on Sunday said that his party would enforce prohibition and set up Lokayuktha in Tamil Nadu if it is voted to power in the assembly polls.

Addressing the state level advocates' conference of his party late last night at Madurai, he said, "as soon as Karunanidhi takes charge as Chief Minister (if DMK came to power after the assembly polls), he will sign for total prohibition and setting up of Lokayuktha".

He recalled that Karunanidhi brought an act similar to Lokayuktha in 1973 by which all persons including the Chief Minister were punishable if found guilty in corruption cases.

The meeting also resolved to request the Centre to set up a Supreme Court Bench in Chennai. They also demanded that Tamil be made the official language of the High Court and that people from all communities get representation in the judiciary.
