Chennai, Apr 6: The Tamizhaga Vazhvurimai Katchi (TVK) party has submitted a letter to the Police Commissioner of Chennai while requesting the authorities not to organise Indian Premier League (IPL) match on April 10 till Cauvery Management Board (CMB) is formed.
“We have submitted our request to Police Commissioner to not let IPL match take place on April 10 till Cauvery Mangement Board is formed. If at all any match happens we will protest in the stadium,” TVK leader Panruti T Velmurugan told media here on Wednesday.
On April 10, Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders are scheduled to lock horns during the IPL match.
Adding further, Velmurugan said, “We assure we will not use any violence.”
Earlier on April 5, DMK-led opposition parties in Tamil Nadu called for a statewide shutdown or bandh. Sevices of KSRTC remain suspended during the bandh as no bus moved from Karnataka to the state in day time.
Tamil Nadu leaders from all political parties including Dravidar Viduthalai Kazhagam (DVK), Viduthalai Thamizh Puligal Katchi (VTPK) and Social Democratic Party of India have been protesting against the Centre over their delay in setting up the CMB. On 16 February, the Supreme Court directed the Centre to form the CMB within six weeks to implement a formula for sharing of Cauvery water between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.
