Coimbatore, Nov 1 (UNI) Thousands of people belonging to about 40 villages in this district of Tamil Nadu today resorted to slogan-shouting demonstration at Udumalpet bus stand near here, urging the State Government to reconsider its decision to merge Udumalpet Taluk with New Tirupur district.

Police said the agitation was led by the former AIADMK minister Pollachi Jayaraman.

The agitators said if the Taluk was included in the Tirupur district, its environment would be affected and wanted it to remain in this district.
