It was not possible to curb hartals which were a democratic right of the people to highlight their plight on different issues. But they did cause a lot of problems to tourists across the State. He said this during a weekly TV discussion.

The announcement by a communist leader assumes great significance. The Government had banned ‘nokkukooli’ from yesterday, practised by various trade unions to claim remuneration for work done by machines.
