Palakkad, Kerala, Aug 9: Welcoming the Kerala Government's decision to ban the sales and production of Pepsi Cola and Coca Cola in the state, Plachimada Solidarity Committee convenor R Ajayan today said they would continue the ongoing struggle against the Coca Cola company.
''We will continue our struggle till all issues raised by us are solved''. He told UNI on August 27, a joint meeting of the Plachimada Coca Cola Virudha Samithi and the Plachimada Solidarity Committee would chalk out the future course of action following the ban, he added.
