Make human chain protest successful, Stalin tells DMK cadres

DMK treasurer and leader of opposition in Tamil Nadu Assembly, M K Stalin, has appealed to its cadres to make the “human chain” on November 24 a success.

The former deputy chief minister said the agitation will be held to protest against the Centre’s “haste” in implementing the demonetisation and the state government for “not taking any action” in addressing people’s grievances.

“Soon after the announcement of the withdrawal of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, people were facing lot of hardships. It is painful to see that low and middle income groups, small traders, farmers, labourers are standing in queues at banks and ATMs to exchange notes and withdraw money for long hours,” he said.

DMK on Saturday said it would form a ‘human chain’ on November 24 protesting against the Centre’s “haste” in implementing demonetisation and the state government for “not taking any action” in addressing people’s grievances.

“Because of the haste in implementing the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes, and the sudden decision made (by Prime Minister Narendra Modi) on November 8, there is no end to the difficulties being faced by the people,” DMK Chief M Karunanidhi said.

Meanwhile, Stalin and PMK leader Anbumani Ramadoss on Sunday expressed grief over the train accident in Kanpur rural area which claimed over 115 lives and left more than 200 injured. “There are no words to express my deep condolences to the bereaved family members”, Stalin said.
