Vaiko arrested for attempting to lay siege to Sterlite plant

MDMK General Secretary Vaiko and a group of people were arrested on Thursday after they attempted to lay siege to Sterlite Copper Plant here demanding its closure following alleged noxious gas leak, police said.

Vaiko said he had been fighting for the past 18 years for closure of the plant to protect the residents.

Farm lands had turned non-cultivable and fishery resources badly affected owing to pollution, Vaiko told reporters, adding that there is no alternative, but to close the plant immediately.PTI
