DMK and allies to protest despite legal restraint

Chennai

Tamil Nadu's opposition party Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and its allies are going to conduct a protest rally as planned despite the permission not being granted by the government.
As the protests intensified since the day Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) was passed on both the houses.
Not even a week ago 58 organisations, celebrities and public in general staged protests at Valluvarkottam in Chennai.  
At an all-party meeting, chaired by DMK chief M.K. Stalin on December 18, it was resolved that the CAA must be revoked and on December 23 a rally would be organised to demand its revocation.
Earlier Stalin had wondered why Muslims were not considered as refugees and Sri Lanka not categorised as a neighbouring country under the CAA.
The DMK and allies will start a rally from CMDA Egmore to Rajarathinam stadium at Pudupet.
Celebrities will also partake in the protest rally. The rally is said to be 10,000 people-strong. 
The police said it will take necessary action against the participants of the rally.
As a preparation for the rally 15,000 police are being deputed.
