"There is ruling by the Supreme Court in January 2013 that we cannot raise a statue in general public places. All party people have a right to bring up a statue to celebrate the birth anniversary, death anniversary of their leader but that can be done only on private land, not in general public places," he added.
The MLA said they have asked the District Collector, Police Commissioner and others to take necessary steps and not grant permission for bringing up the statue of Jayalalithaa in a public place.
If they don't take necessary action, we will move the court, he warned.
Earlier on Wednesday, DMK MLA Dr P Saravanan along with other party leaders from Madurai filed a complaint against the installation of the statue.
