Anti-Sterlite protests vigorously shake Tamil Nadu
Just a couple of days after the emergence of a violent protest in the South India State Tamil Nadu’s coastal district of Thoothukudi against the Sterlite Copper Smelter Plant, senior DMK leader M K Stalin has staged protest outside TN CM Edappadi K Palaniswami’s office situated inside the state secretariat.
The police have detained the DMK leader and many others who have gathered outside the state secretariat in support of their leader’s sit-in strike.
The arrested leader has informed the media personals that he was denied permission to meet the CM and discuss the issue and has asserted that he had the courage to face any bullets for the people.
Anyway, all allegations of the opposition leader have been denounced by the CM, saying that he never rejected permission to meet the opposition leaders and took all necessary steps to fight the company legally for the people.
Meanwhile, the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board has ordered the closure of the company which has allegedly inflicted several damages in the environment. The electricity lines which supply current required to operate the machines installed in the plant have been disconnected today morning itself.
Several innocent protesters were brutally killed during the Anti-Sterlite protest. Some serious allegations were triggered against the police authorities who used an unusual method to disperse the crowd who were indulged in the non-violent protest.
