Chennai, Tamil Nadu Highlights Today: Speaking in the state assembly on Wednesday, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin, said ” Law and order is better in Tamil Nadu and there is no compromise on the governor’s security. Only the rowdies are scared. Opposition parties need not fear. ”

Upping the ante on the black flag protest against Governor R N Ravi, Tamil Nadu BJP on Tuesday took up the issue with Union Home Minister Amit Shah and sought action against people behind the ‘violent protest’. Alleging police inaction, the Saffron party requested action against officers who failed to take appropriate measures to prevent it. Writing to Shah, state BJP chief K Annamalai said if the DMK government cannot guarantee safe passage for ‘a Governor, the plight of the people is unimaginable. This reflects the alarming law and order situation in the state.’

Tamil Nadu Governor R N Ravi on Tuesday faced black flag protests from DMK, its allies and other outfits during his visit to a mutt in Mayiladuthurai. The state BJP chief K Annamalai, later, alleged that the Governor’s convoy was attacked by DMK cadres with stones and flag poles. The state police, however, clarified that reports of attack were baseless. Governor Ravi was on his way to visit Dharmapuram Adheenam mutt in Mayiladuthurai to attend a function when over 100 protesters from the ruling DMK and its allies waved black flags and raised “Go Back Governor” and “Go Back, Ravi” slogans. Police detained about 100 protesters.

Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu is making rapid progress on the industrial front particularly in obtaining more investments and the state’s share in the country’s foreign direct investment (FDI) increased to 5 percent from 4 in the past, due to proactive initiatives, Chief Minister M K Stalin said on Tuesday. In other news, the Madras High Court ordered one month’s notice to the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board on a PIL petition seeking to order the demolition of the copper smelting unit of Sterlite in Thoothukudi district in the state.
