Cadres of the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam on Monday staged a demonstration here protesting against the State government for raising the consumer price of milk and bus fare.
It was part of the State wide agitation organized by the party. District secretary Nenmeni Jayaraman presided over the protest, which was attended by over 150 persons.
They raised slogans against the State government for betraying the people, who voted the AIADMK to power. The steep hike of bus fare would badly hit the common people, who mainly depend upon the public transport system. It was an anti people move, they said. Similarly, the milk price had also been hiked without calculating the purchasing power of people, particularly the poor.
Around 120 members belonging to the MDMK staged a demonstration near Dindigul municipality on Monday condemning the sharp hike in prices of milk, increase in bus fare and TNEB tariff. They raised slogans against the state government and its anti-people policies.
