“What the tenants really seek is not just a right to dictate the terms of that tenancy beyond anything the law contemplates, but to impermissibly expand tenancy rights to the prejudice of the property owner — without taking the slightest steps to acquire those ownership rights.”

“Politicians play an influential role in the life of a common man. The words and actions of a politician has an impact on his followers, party men and public at large. It is imperative that this power is not to be misused for illegal and personal gains”
Supreme Court held that not putting a quietus to the prolonged dispute at hand, spanning 38 years, on something as simple as tenancy issue, would be a travesty of justice.

The Court said that Section 4 of the Tamil Nadu Cultivating Tenant Protection Act provides for restoration of possession only in limited cases and that too when the default is of only one year of lease amount to be paid.
The Supreme Court said that before examining the defendants’ ground of res judicata to oppose the eviction petition, several aspects may have to be looked into, like whether such an issue was substantively at issue in the previous suit and similar such other questions may crop up.
