`Using vehicles inappropriate'

By Our Staff Reporter

CHENNAI, SEPT. 14. The Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam MP, L. Ganesan, today said his party leader, Vaiko, would go ahead with the `renaissance walk' despite denial of permission by the city police.

He was speaking to presspersons after asking the Police Commissioner to reconsider the decision. "We have been conducting this march peacefully and there has been no untoward incident in any of the three Corporations, Tirunelveli, Madurai and Tiruchi through which the rally passed," said Mr. Ganesan. "We won't disrupt public life. Our party is distinct and different from other political parties. We want to end this march on a peaceful note," he said.

On the suggestion to stop the rally at the Kathipara Junction and that the marchers use vehicles to reach the Island Grounds, where a meeting is to be held, Mr. Ganesan said they had traversed over 1,000 km on foot even under the most adverse conditions and now it would be inappropriate to complete the rally in vehicles.
