In support of those observing relay fast at Idinthakarai
: Hundreds of people from different parts of the district staged a demonstration here in support of people who were observing relay fast at Idinthakarai on Monday.
Fishermen of the district did not venture into sea for fishing in support of the agitating people who demanded the closure of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project.
The co-ordinator of the Anti-Nuclear People Movement, Udayakumar, the co-ordinator (political wing), Mano Thankaraj, former MLA, Kumaradass, and others spoke.
Mr. Mano Thankaraj said that though a resolution in connection with closing the Kudankulam project was unanimously passed at Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly, it was not passed in Parliament.
The resolution to close down KKNPP would be passed in all local bodies and the houses of those presidents or chairmen of local bodies would be laid a siege, if they failed to pass the resolution, Mr. Mano Thankaraj said.
