Signature campaign against “war preparations”

MADURAI: A signature campaign urging India and Pakistan to avoid “war preparations” of any sort was conducted by the Usilai Vattara Women’s Collective here on Tuesday.

The Usilai Vattara Women’s Collective is the Madurai branch of the Tamil Nadu Women’s Collective, which is running this campaign across 25 districts in the State from January first week. The drive will go on till February 8. A lot of members from the general public, especially women, signed on the campaign banner.

The collective has demanded that both India and Pakistan should curb terrorism in any form and work towards the development of their respective nation’s citizens. War could never bring any solution to the problems faced by these countries; only genuine diplomatic intervention by both could solve them, it said.
