In protest against genocide of Tamils in Sri Lanka

Coimbatore: An all-party meeting convened under the banner of Eela Tamilar Padukappu Iyakkam has resolved to seek the support of all sections of society to ensure a total strike on February 4.

The strike is to register the protest of the people of Tamil Nadu over the genocide of Tamils in Sri Lanka and the failure of the Centre to ensure ceasefire there.

The meeting presided by K. Ramakrishnan, general secretary of Periyar Dravidar Kazhagam (PDK), was held at the office of the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK).
