The banners flayed DMK's stand on Sri Lankan Tamil issue.
In his memorandum, which has been sent to various officials including the DGP, Chennai Corporation commissioner and Chennai district collector, he said, "Various banners and flex boards on the footpaths and on the roads in the city, particularly on Dr Radhakrishnan Salai and Kamarajar Salai, erected by the AIADMK party workers, carry highly objectionable, derogatory and defamatory remarks referring to our party and leader."
Bharathi claimed that though his party had made several representations to the concerned officials to get the illegal boards removed and to take action against the persons who erected the boards, no action had been taken.
"With the existing laws, the district collector is empowered to remove such objectionable banners forthwith even without any notice," the memorandum said.
"The banners/flex boards containing such defamatory and objectionable remarks will certainly provoke violence, and the general public is annoyed and agitated over such banners," the memorandum added.
The memorandum warned of initiating legal action against the officials for their 'failure' to act on the representations submitted by the party.
