SC Order on Rajiv murder convicts' release a panacea for State govts: Vaiko


Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam General Secretary Vaiko has welcomed the Supreme Court judgement on the release of seven convicts in the Rajiv assassination case as a panacea for State governments, because till date, the powers conferred on State governments under Article 161 were often interrupted by the Centre.

He has urged Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palanisami to immediately convene the cabinet and reiterate the earlier decision of the State Government to release all the seven convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.

He added that the judgment of the Bench was a silver lining in the dark horizon of the past, with regards to the case of Perarivalan and others, who are seeking premature release after going through 26 years of imprisonment.

He added that though the then Chief Minister Jayalalithaa had convened a special session of the Assembly to pass a resolution seeking the release of the seven convicts and had sent the proposal to the Centre for consultation, the Union Government had cited various impediments and delayed the decision without any justification.

He said: "I am happy that the convicts will now come out of the walls of the prison to see the light of life. I did whatever I could in my capacity to get them relief."
