PUDUKOTTAI: The Pudukottai Parliamentary Retrieval Committee comprising representatives of service organisations, Chambers of commerce and literary associations, has been floated exclusively to fight for the restoration of Parliamentary constituency status for Pudukottai.

Post cards to President

The committee has launched a mass campaign by sending post-cards, demanding immediate restoration of Parliamentary status for Pudukottai, to the President. Hundreds of post cards carrying the message were sent through various post-offices in the town on Wednesday.

To boycott general elections
