Special Correspondent



P.Nedumaran

CHENNAI: The Tamizhar Desiya Iyakkam founder P. Nedumaran on Thursday launched a fast-unto-death agitation demanding despatch of Rs. 1 crore-worth food and medicines to Tamils in Sri Lanka through the Indian Red Cross.

The police said that Mr. Nedumaran, accompanied by his volunteers, commenced the fast at 10 a.m. at a private place near Koyambedu junction.

Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam general secretary Vaiko, Viduthalai Chiruthai Katchi leader Thol Thirumavalavan and Pattali Makkal Katchi president G.K.Mani met Mr. Nedumaran.

When contacted in the evening, a senior police officer said that no action had been initiated as yet since the protest was organised at a private place. However, the police will intervene should the health of Mr Nedumaran deteriorate, he added.

Meanwhile, a press release issued by PMK founder S Ramadoss urged Mr Nedumaran to give up the stir.
