Stepping up its agitation against the ruling AIADMK in Tamil
Nadu over the arrest of its leaders, opposition DMK today said it would hold
state-wide public meetings from June 28.
A statement from DMK propaganda secretaries A Raja and
Tiruchi N Siva said party chief M Karunanidhi, his son MK Stalin, Kanimozhi,
MP, general secretary K Anbazhagan and themselves, among others, will address
the meetings to explain the recent Executive Committee decision to conduct
'jail bharo' on July 4 protesting the arrest of DMK leaders.
Karunanidhi will address a meeting at suburban Tambaram on
July 1, the statement added.
The leaders will explain the Executive Committee resolution
