DHARMAPURI: MDMK general secretary Vaiko will lead a hunger strike in Madurai on February 9 to protest against the Kerala government’s move to build a new dam across the Mullaperiyar.

Mr. Vaiko told reporters here on Monday that party workers from across the State would participate in large numbers in the hunger strike in front of Central government offices in Madurai. He urged the Kerala government to abandon its move to build the dam as it would cause damage to the existing structure. — Staff Reporter
