Members of the Tamil Nadu Vivasayigal Sangam, the farmers wing of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), staged a demonstration in front of the Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation (TANGEDCO) office here on Monday, urging the State government to initiate immediate action for assured supply of power to domestic, industrial and agricultural consumers.

M. Sebastian, district president of the sangam, said the farmers were worst-hit due to unscheduled power trips.

He said agricultural productivity would be affected, if the trend continued for another one or two seasons. He said three-phase supply should be stabilised, facilitating the farmers to irrigate their fields during the forthcoming summer.
