DMK leader A Raja booked over 'provocative' remarks against Former CM Late J Jayalalitha

A police case has been registered against DMK deputy general secretary A Raja for his provocative remarks against late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa and the current Chief Minister K Palaniswami following a complaint from the AIADMK, police said on Saturday. 

The recent press conference by the former union minister A Raja was quoted by an office-bearer of the AIADMK's legal wing alleged Raja made highly abusive remarks against his party's late supremo besides Palaniswami and requested action as per law. The First Information Report was registered by the Central Crime Branch under sections including giving provocation with intent to cause riot, a senior police officer said. The development of filing a case comes close on the heels of a slugfest between the opposition DMK and ruling AIADMK in connection with corruption allegations. 

Raja had said recently that none from his party has ever been convicted in any major corruption case who along with Kanimozhi faced court cases for 2G scam. Palaniswami hit back saying the 2G 'scam' shamed the entire nation and Raja was even lodged in the Tihar prison.
