DMK's Stalin firm on protests against governor Purohit despite warning

Even as Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit's office on Sunday warned that anybody trying to overawe the Governor will be dealt with sternly, DMK leader MK Stalin said their protest against Purohit's visits to districts will continue.
The Raj Bhavan said the Governor would continue his visits to districts in the coming months and the Office of Governor was protected under Section 124 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Any attempt to overawe or assault or use criminal force would be dealt with as per the law, it said. Reacting to the statement, Stalin said the Governor had threatened the DMK and was also indulging in direct politics which was condemnable. Stalin said the party would continue its protest against Purohit's visits to districts and meeting the officials there. The Raj Bhavan statement said:"Whoever, with the intention of inducing or compelling the President of India, or the Governor of any State, to exercise or refrain from exercising in any manner any of the lawful powers of such President or Governor, assaults or wrongfully restrains, or attempts wrongfully to restrain, or overawes, by means of criminal force or the show of criminal force, or attempts so to overawe, such President or Governor, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to seven years, and shall also be liable to fine."
