As a virtual bandh is being observed in Tamil Nadu on Monday despite the Supreme Court's order banning the government from doing so, the opposition All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam made a special mention before the Madras high court with regard to violation of the apex court order.
AIADMK legal advisor N Jothi, MP, made the mention before a bench, comprising Chief Justice A P Shah and Justice P Jyothimani, and said the government did not operate public transport.
They had also engaged goondas to threaten shop owners and commercial establishments to down their shutters, he said.
The bench said it would take up the matter at 1200 IST.
Earlier, AIADMK legal wing secretary Manoj Pandian told PTI that the party would petition State Chief Secretary L K Tripathy on the alleged violation of the Supreme Court order.
