Contempt proceedings against Actor & altruist Mr. @Suriya_offl is baseless. In the first place Madras High Court or any other High courts have no grounds to prosecute him, as his comments does not come under their jurisdiction. #TNStandWithSuriya /1
To protect the dignity of the courts & distinguish the smooth administration of justice, only superior courts have the power to punish a person in contempt case. Mr Suriya`s remarks are about the judgement of the apex court & it is in noway connected to Madras High Court. /2
In many contempt cases Supreme Court has remarked that criticism on the judgement must be welcomed in a civil society as long as it does not hamper the administration of the justice. Moreover his remarks does not vilify any judge of the supreme court. /3
Civil contempt involves willful disobedience of law, writ or direction. He did not disobey the direction of law or violate the judgement of the SC. Criminal contempt would involve accusation of scandalizing the court or interfering judicial proceeding or obstructing justice. /4
We can clearly reason out that his remarks in no way interferes with judicial proceeding or obstructs administration of justice. His criticism is well with in the limits of the civilized society & any action against him would only curb the idea of free marketplace of ideas. /n

This thread is about the Arrear exam case that has been filed in the high court.

Advocate Mr. Ramkumar has filed a case in Madras High court, with prayer to quash the Tamilnadu G.O, which cancelled the arrear exams of students - who have paid exam fees. /1
In his plea he claims that TN govt has violated the guidelines of #UGC & #AICTE and also opposes TN govt`s decision on the grounds that it would deteriorate the standard of higher education in the state . The case is not listed for hearing on Monday. /2
In the final year students case against UGC in Supreme Court, even before hearing began I said that the plea of Maharashtra govt is the only valid prayer, as it has invoked Disaster Management Act. Hon`ble judges also raised this crux question whether DMA could override UGC?. /3

Before the last hearing on case against UGC in Supreme Court, I elucidated that court would scrutiny the legality of the UGC guidelines, with respect to disaster / epidemic act of the States. Hon`ble judges made the same observation in the last hearing. #StudentsLivesMatters /1
Court didn`t engage the petitions that were filed based on mercy. Courts can only interfere if there is a violation of law. The petition of Maha & Delhi govt is the only valid & pivotal petition. Tamilnadu govt should have impleaded in the case too. #StudentsInSCForJustice /2
Courts can only decide based on the legal frame work of the constitution. Tomorrow`s hearing gains much importance because it would address a very salient crisis, whether States can overrule the command of the statutory body like #UGC . #studentsAgainstUGCGuidelines /3

Case against #UGC guidelines to resume hearing tomorrow in the Supreme Court. Usually courts don`t interfere in the policy decision of the govt. UGC is a statutory body. In the affidavit filed by UGC, it has raised the same concern. /1

#31StudentsInSCForJustice #cancelallexams
UGC in the affidavit, has stated that court usually don`t interfere in academic policy of the govt. UGC, as of now is the apex body of higher education in the country. The work of UGC is majorly regulatory in nature especially with regard to grants. /2 #31studentinscagainstugc
The authority, jurisdiction, power & policy framework of #UGC comes under strict scrutiny now, as the States claim that they have more authority over UGC. It is in this deadlock situation, the petition of Mr. @AUThackeray gains greater importance. /3 #CancelExamsInCovid

BJP wants to cook a Kichdi in Tamilnadu politics, with Equal amounts of Sugar, Salt & Chili !


With Mrs.Sasikala`s release expected any time in near future, political equations in Taminadu likely to change ! /1
AIADMK, when it was started by Mr.MGR was seen as a Thevar party, as he successfully consolidated the Thevar community vote bank under his party fold. Thevar is a prominent community in terms of numbers (electoral) in South & Delta Tamilnadu. /2
Mr.MGR`s political success was primarily because of the amalgamation of votes from West & South Tamilnadu. AIADMK is strong in Western Tamilnadu,not only because of the Gounder community votes, but also Arunthathiyar votes. Both the community staunchly support AIADMK! /3

Many think that Salem is in Kongu belt. Actually Salem is a Vanniyar bastion. Majority community here in Salem is Vanniyar. In Salem, DMK WAS strong in Urban area. Local politics brought down the popularity of DMK even among urban voters. /1
ADMK made in roads to many DMK pockets from 2011. Resentment against one particular nepotistic local DMK family was the reason DMK lost consecutively it`s strong hold. Failure of DMK to have a check on the local henchman is the reason people started disliking the party ! /2
Edappadi - the constituency from which the current CM Mr.EPS won is also a Vanniyar majority area. The second major community there is Nadar. Nadar votes are very pivotal in deciding the victory of any candidate. /3
