The DMK termed the Raj Bhavan's imprisonment warning 'intimidatory' and vowed to continue its black flag protests against Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit over his visits to districts and meeting officials.

The principal Opposition, which staged a walkout in the state assembly over the issue of the Governor's visits, also asserted it would "make any sacrifice" to uphold the state's autonomy.

The Raj Bhavan had issued a statement taking exception to the DMK's continuing protests against Purohit's district visits and the party's 'siege Raj Bhavan' stir. The Raj Bhavan had said the Governor enjoys "unhindered freedom" to interact with officials and cited a legal provision providing seven years imprisonment to those "restraining" him from exercising any of thE powers.
