Workers in stone quarries and members of Construction Workers Forum organized a demonstration at Mettur Taluk Office demanding that the government run stone quarries.

The workers also urged that they be trained professionally in handling explosives.

The workers should be paid minimum wages as per the provisions of the Mine Act while the workers in quarries should be given free house site ‘pattas.'

Karuppannan presided over the agitation in which many quarry workers took part.
