Reportedly legal battles surrounding the management of the south Indian Artistes' Association, popularly known as Nadigar Sangam intensified on friday, after incumbent General Secretary vishal approached the madras high court for the removal of a government appointed special officer to oversee the organization’s functioning. Meanwhile his counsel further alleged that the appointment was illegal.
Furthermore the tamilnadu government on thursday appointed PV Geetha, Assistant Inspector General of Registration, as Special Officer to manage the affairs of Nadigar Sangam. Perhaps geetha will hold office for a period of one year beginning november 6, 2019, or until disputes pertaining to Nadigar Sangam elections pending with the madras high court are resolved and hence the move was made after one faction of the association alleged that day to day affairs were being interrupted due to the lack of elected office bearers.
Moreover Nadigar Sangam President Nasser said "We have nothing to hide and have been running a transparent office. We will therefore co-operate with the Special Officer. It is our responsibility to do so. They don't have anything on us, we have no faults. This is democracy being choked".
