EPS expresses worry over law and order

Chennai: AIADMK joint coordinator and Leader of Opposition Edappadi K Palaniswami has said that law and order in Tamilnadu was in a shambles and heinous crimes, including murders, were on the rise.

Speaking at a party meeting in Villupuram, where he reviewed preparations for local body elections, the former Chief Minister said that law and order situation under the AIADMK government had been better than under the present regime.

He added: ‘It is quite amusing that the Director General of Police was now coming out with a statement that a number of rowdy elements have been taken into custody. But law and order in the State is deteriorating and one is at a loss to understand what the government has been doing all these days.’
