KARUR: The press corps in Karur staged a demonstration here on Friday to protest the alleged attack on the offices of the “Makkal Tholaikatchi'' in Chennai by miscreants.

Denounce attacks

The scribes, who assembled in front of the Taluk Office here on the Jawahar Bazaar, raised slogans denouncing the attacks on the media and vehemently condemned efforts aimed at “stifling the voice of freedom.''

Organised attacks on media offices were on the rise due to “intolerance'' of vested interests who were not ready to analyse the situation and seek solutions accordingly, the protestors observed.

Karur Press Club members participated.

Thirukkural Peravai secretary Melai Palaniappan were among those who spoke at the demonstration.
