Toddy Movement expresses disappointment

Staff Reporter

Tirupur: The Tamil Nadu Toddy Movement (TNTM) has expressed its disappointment over the lifting of ban on toddy tapping not featuring among the first seven files of projects/welfare measures in which the new Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa put her signature after assuming office.

“The AIADMK general secretary had given us an assurance during the election campaign at Pollachi that the ban on toddy tapping will be lifted following which our movement members across the State took a decision to support AIADMK candidates,” TNTM field co-ordinator C. Nallasamy told , after a meeting of the Movement.

The Movement had requested Ms. Jayalalithaa during the campaign that the lifting of ban on toddy tapping should be the first file in which she should put her signature after winning the election as it was a matter concerning the livelihood opportunities of lakhs of coconut and palmyra farmers. “We are now expecting that the Government will lift the ban at the earliest,” he said.

It came down on the Union Government for allowing the oil companies to increase the price of petrol, which had a cascading effect on every spectrum of the society.
