The members raised slogans opposing the government's move during the demonstration that was led by the organisation's Srirangam zonal president, Prakash. The demonstration was held near Anna statue.

The State had announced the melting of temple jewellery into gold bars and depositing them in banks to generate revenue for temples from the interest.
