The workers of Anglo French Textile (ATF) Mills on Thursday laid a siege to the mill premises to show their opposition to the government’s proposed move to lease it out to private players.

Members of Organised Anglo-French Mills Employees’ Federation assembled here and raised slogans against the move.

The AITUC has sent a memorandum to Chief Minister N. Rangasamy seeking his intervention in dropping the move. AITUC General Secretary V.S. Abisegham, said a two-member private party from north India had visited the mill on Monday and held discussion with the management for leasing out the mill.
