The Tamil Nadu government has stated in court that a full curfew is not necessary in Tamil Nadu on Saturday, May 1 and that a full curfew is already in place on the day of the counting of votes on May 2.
The Attorney General of the State of Tamil Nadu has given this explanation in the iCourt as the Chennai I-Court had recommended a complete curfew on May 1 and 2, ahead of the May 2 polls in Tamil Nadu.
As Labor Day is a public holiday, there is no need to declare a full curfew on Saturday, May 1, and a full curfew cannot be imposed as the vaccination program for those over 18 years of age begins that day.
Meanwhile, in Tamil Nadu, a full curfew has been declared every Sunday and the full curfew is already in effect on May 2, when the counting of votes will take place.
Should the Chennai I-Court, which has accepted this interpretation, issue a full curfew during the counting of votes in Tamil Nadu? The Tamil Nadu government has decided whether to allow the media in the counting centers and adjourned the case till tomorrow.
