The MDMK had said it would hold demonstrations in front of the Collectorates in all districts if its leader, Vaiko, was arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act.
Even as the volunteers began assembling near the Collectorates, the police moved in swiftly to remove them in vans. In Chennai, a few batches of 10 to 20 volunteers were removed just after 10 a.m. The others, who were watching the scene from a distance, waited until they gathered in numbers. At around 10-30 a.m. about 50 volunteers, shouting slogans against the AIADMK Government and the Chief Minister, Jayalalithaa, tried to reach the Collectorate. They too were arrested. Similar scenes were reported from the districts. Leaders of the MDMK said the party would continue with various forms of struggle until the ``repressive'' AIADMK regime mended its ways.
