Tiruchirapalli, Dec 3 (UNI) Members of the Tiruchirapalli rural district unit of AIADMK under Sri Rangam Assembly constituency MLA Paranjothi staged a slogan shouting demonstration infront of the Panchayat union office at Andhanallur near here today, condemning the Tamil Nadu Government's undeclared power cut in the State.
Mr Paranjothi strongly condemned the State Government for not taking steps for adequate power generation and not properly maintaining the existing power plants. This caused severe power crisis in the State and the farming operations of the State came to a grinding halt, he claimed.
Due to the undeclared power cut, the industrial sector in the State also was adversely affected.
Similar demonstration was also held under the leadership of former AIADMK Minister and party's rural district Secretary K K Balasubramaniayan infront of Tiruverumbur Panchayat union office here.
In Karur district similar demonstrations were held in 12 different places and in Karur town it was led by former AIADMK Minister and Party's organising Secretary M Chinnasamy.
