Five TASMAC shops closed

Only five of the 201 TASMAC retail shops remained closed on Wednesday when a section of the TASMAC employees had called for a State-wide strike.

The police said that only 65 shops were opened in the morning. However, as time passed the employees reported for duty.

Meanwhile, the police picked up 65 employees in Aruppukottai and Keelarajakularaman for attempting to force the employees to close the shutters of retail shops.


The strike call given by the various unions of TASMAC employees evoked no response from them in the district. All 181 shops run by TASMAC functioned as usual. As many as 864 employees reported for duty.
