On Sunday, the route from Rajarathinam Stadium in Egmore to Chintadripet was filled with more than 1000 Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS ) cadres who carried out a march after 16 years. It was estimated that more than 1000 people of RSS participated in the protest to celebrate the anniversary of Guru Gobind Singh,Saint Ramanujan, BR Ambedkar and Subhash Chandra Bose.
The march which was organized by RSS chennai chapter, was for almost 2kms, with people wearing wearing white shirts and khaki pants with black caps.It is to be noted that similar marches took place in interior parts of Tamil Nadu such as Salem, Kanchipuram and Puducherry.
The New Indian Express, reported the confirmation of the presence of BJP state president Tamilisai Soundarajan with sufficient police in number. Moreover, the state government did not go against or challenge the court’s decision legally which resulted in a suspicion whether if the current government had a soft corner for RSS.
The Madras High Court had permitted RSS to conduct marches in 14 places in 2016 with cadres wearing full pants. After which,they had moved to the court after police and district administration denied permission.
