Protestors removed

By Our Staff Reporter

COIMBATORE, FEB. 24. Police today removed protesting trade union activists in Coimbatore, Tirupur and Udumalpet as they staged demonstrations as part of the nation-wide general strike called by the Left-backed Central trade unions in support of their demand for restoration of the "right to strike". The protestors were later released in the evening. Normal business activities at banks, insurance companies, telegraph offices and telecom offices were paralysed.

However, functioning of Southern Railway remained unaffected. In Coimbatore city, nearly 460 activists, led by the district secretary of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), P.R. Natarajan and the Singanallur MLA, K.C. Karunakaran, attempted to organise picketing and were removed by the police.

Demonstrations were held by members of the Southern Railway Mazdoor Union at the Railway Station and the Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation employees at the TNSTC headquarters on Mettuppalayam Road.
