33 Associations stage hunger strike at Sivakasi TANFAMA
Today, 33 assocations from Sivakasi & Thiruthangal staged a one day hunger strike at TANFAMA Centre, to protest against the steep hike in the fireworks licence fee for manufacturing explosives and to stop importing cheap Chinese fireworks to India. Over a thousand people gathered at TANFAMA and actively participated to vent their feelings. Sivakasi industrial units and shops downed their shutters and participated in the one-day strike. They also demanded relaxation on several controls, which were not practicable.
