Honour Killing: Stalin rules out allies’ demand for special law

Even as Tamil Nadu is witnessing a spike in honour killings and anti-Dalit atrocities, Chief Minister MK Stalin has refused to accede to the demand from the ruling DMK’s allies to bring in a special legislation to curb them on the ground that effective implementation of existing penal laws was enough and would serve the purpose.

Stalin’s Triumph

The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) led by chief minister M K Stalin has emerged as a formidable force in Tamil Nadu, successfully securing alongside its allies a clean sweep of the state’s 39 Lok Sabha seats.
