When the Central government itself has announced that e-pass is not compulsory, the “AIADMK government continuing to have it with an ulterior motive will not be a solution for the affected people,” stalin said. 

DMK President M K Stalin Thursday asked the AIADMK government not to create an “artificial barrier” for travel by people and demanded immediate cancellation of the e-pass system for inter-district journey.

Applications seeking passes even for emergencies have been rejected many times, though the government had said permission would be given for inter-district travel for medical emergencies, deaths and marriages, he alleged adding “the e-pass system in the AIADMK government is a big failure.”

Citing news reports on alleged corruption in issuance of e-pass in places, including Chennai, he said, “Extending the system and hassling people is inhuman and counter-productive.” Since March 25, people could not make inter-district journeys even for emergencies and they were being harassed, he alleged.
