Opposing a newly-opened Tasmac outlet on Vysial Street, , members of the Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) staged a demonstration in front of the Collectorate on Monday.

In their petition to the Collector during the weekly grievances redress meeting, they said that due to the outlet, women and students are unable to go to the temple and schools located nearby.

“Further, being a residential area, a few people get involved in disputes in an inebriated state. It is to be noted that there is already a Tasmac outlet in the same area. Hence, this establishment is not needed,” they said..
