`Coke unit will not be allowed to reopen'

Staff Reporter

'People's trial on court order'

PALAKKAD: N.N. Krishnadas, MP, on Monday said "the Hindustan Coca-Cola unit at Plachimada that is remaining closed for the last two-and-a-half years will not be allowed to reopen".

Inaugurating the `people's trial on the court order' lifting the ban on Coca-Cola and the closure of its unit at Plachimada, organised by the Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) in front of the factory, Mr. Krishnadas said: "If the law goes against the overwhelming majority of people it may be violated in a democratic system. Mahatma Gandhi did this against the British rule during the freedom struggle. But in a democratic rule too we are forced to do it. So the struggle against Coca-Cola will continue."

Mr. Krishnadas said the DYFI organised `people's trial' on Gandhi Jayanti day because it would follow the Gandhian struggle of `violating the law' if it went against the people.

The meeting was presided over by DYFI leader Jayadevan. S. Ajayakumar, MP, environmentalist C.K. Neelakandan and DFYI district president Subash Chandra Bose were among those who addressed the gathering.
