Over 300 DMK workers held for picketing road in Coimbatore

Coimbatore : Nearly 300 DMK workers were arrested today when they attempted to stage picketing on Avanashi Road demanding immediate repair of over 100 roads connecting the highway from different areas.
Though the party had given representation to the Corporation Commissioner and also officials a year ago, there was no response which led to deterioration of the roads, party legislator N Karthik, who led the agitation, said.
Owing to the digging for underground drainage and other works going at snail’s pace, the roads had become unmotorable and pedestrians and school children found it difficult to use the roads.
The protest was against the negligence by corporation officials and the agitation would be intensified if action was not taken immediately, he added. Since police had not granted permission for the march, the activists were arrested.
