CHENNAI : Union Communication and IT Minister Dayanidhi Maran on Wednesday filed a petition in the Madras High Court seeking to restrain Vaiko from referring to certain issues which were “perniciously false, highly defamatory and malicious”. In his civil suit, Maran sought a permanent injunction restraining the MDMK leader, who had recently quit the DMK-led alliance in Tamil Nadu and joined the one led by the AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa for the May 8 state Assembly polls, from making any speech or giving any statement orally or in writing against him in connection with cancellation of licence to Raj TV for uplinking two additional channels.

He also prayed for issue of an order to prevent Vaiko from referring to the alleged payment of Rs 10 crore to Sun TV, controlled by his brother Kalanidhi Maran and other family members, by BSNL for advertisements.
