Earlier, Tamil Nadu police had filed a petition in the Madras High Court seeking to review the permission it had granted to conduct the march on September 22. The petition was based on the National Investigation Agency (NIA) raids and arrests of leaders of Popular Front of India (PFI) and the subsequent ban on the organisation.
The police had said that the situation was not conducive for conducting a march and the subsequent public programme, given the communally sensitive nature in many parts of the state.
