CHENNAI, DEC. 10. Leaders and cadres of the Democratic Progressive Alliance (DPA) today staged slogan-shouting demonstrations throughout Tamil Nadu to condemn "the attempt by the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Sangh Parviar to politicise the arrest of the Kanchi Acharya" in the Sankararaman murder case.

Members of Parliament and the Assembly and workers belonging to the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, the Congress, the Pattali Makkal Katchi, the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, the Communist parties and the Indian Union Muslim League participated in the stir. The participation by thousands of volunteers was a reiteration of the DPA's commitment to secularism, the parties claimed.

The agitation was also to condemn the State Government's delay in reinstating road maintenance workers in spite of a Supreme Court ruling, its ``non-cooperation'' in implementing the Sethusamudram project and the delay in disbursement of crop loans to delta farmers.
