via HK published on October 29, 2007

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court today issued notices to the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, Union Transport Minister T R Balu and others for allegedly going ahead with October one state-wide bandh on Sethusamudram controversy.

A Bench of Justices B N Aggarwal and P P Naolakar, however, dispensed with the personal appearance of the VIPs in the matter.

The Bench issued the notices after the counsel for opposition AIADMK furnished in the Court photographs and various news clippings to prove that the ruling party had actively sponsored the bandh despite the apex Court’s order prohibiting it.

The counsel also told the Court that the Union Transport Minister had allegedly made several inflammatory and contemptuous remarks against the apex Court for prohibiting the bandh.
