Covai Post Network

Chennai : Opposition leader, DMK working president MK Stalin urged the state government to invite the protesting teachers and government employees for talks to redress their grievances instead of taking police action against them.

On Tuesday, several protesting teachers and government employees were taken into custody after they held up traffic on busy Anna Salai. Members of the Joint Action Committee of Tamil Nadu Teachers’ Organisations-Government Employees’ Organisations (JACTTO-GEO) were arrested when they tried to take out a march towards the state secretariat at St Fort George.
