Coimbatore, Nov 1 (UNI) MDMK General Secretary Vaiko and hundreds of party workers today resorted to a token fast at Pollachi in the district against the inclusion of Pollachi railway line with Palakkad railway division while setting up a new Salem railway division.

The fast was inaugurated by former Union Minister and MDMK Treasurer M Kannappan, near the Taluk office.
