Cadre of the Moovendar Munnetra Kazhagam staged a demonstration near the Old bus stand here on Wednesday in support of their charter of demands.

The demands, among other things, included naming of the Madurai airport after Pasumpon Muthuramalinga Thevar within a fortnight; sanctioning a government medical college and hospital to Pudukottai; notification of the Mukkulothar as a backward class community.

K. Nagudevan, district president of the party, led the stir.

G.M. Sridhar Vandaiyar, founder president of the party, in his address, said that the naming of the airport in Madurai after Pasumpon Muthuramalinga Thevar would be a right tribute to his sacrifices and selfless services.
