In a statement here today, Mr Krishnan Secretary of the TNVHAA and TSAJA Secretaries N Chandrasekaran and Mothi R Dhantayutham said the agitation was part of the state-wide stir in support of which most of the jewellery shops in and around Tiruchirapalli were closed today Online trading led to rise in prices of silver and gold day-by-day resulting in the poor and the middle class not being in a position to even think of the precious ornaments. Hence, it was high time for the governments to ban online trading.
