Makkal Nala Paniyalargal staged a ‘begging bowl' demonstration demanding their reinstatement at Avurithidal here on Thursday.

The protesters demanded that the government reinstate them as directed by the High Court.

The High Court had earlier pulled up the State government for sacking the people's welfare workers appointed by the previous DMK regime in the State.

The protesters marked a symbolic show of their plight. Over 224 people were secured.
