Members belonging to the Tamil Nadu Makkal Nala Paniyalar Munnetra Sangam were arrested on Thursday when they attempted to open a gruel centre to express their plight in a symbolic manner.

The members, who are fighting for their reinstatement, assembled near the Vazhi Vidu Murugan Temple in a bid to open a gruel centre, when police arrested them.

Police said 54 people, including 20 women were arrested for holding the protest without police permission. They were later released in the evening, police added.
