Rajahmundry, Mar 23 (UNI) More than 50 poultry farmers of East Godavari district today detained the Guntur-bound Simhadri Express at the railway station here for ten minutes in protest against the Union Government's inaction on bird flu.

Holding placards ''no bird flu and egg is protein,'' they raised slogans urging the Centre to come to the rescue of the poultry farmers by serving chicken in railways and airlines to dispel the fears of bird flu.

Stating that the drastic fall in the price of chicken and eggs had affected them badly, the farmers urged the Union Government to take effective steps to bring normalcy in the poultry industry and announce that there was no avian flu in the country.

They later dispersed on their own.
