Anti-Sterlite protest: DMK stages protest, demands CM resignation

DMK working president M K Stalin demanded the resignation of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palanisami and DGP T K Rajendran over the anti-Sterlite violence at Tuticorin in which 13 people have been killed and scores injured.

Even after death of 13 innocent people, no action has been taken against the culprits. CM has become ineffective. He did not bother to visit the dist & meet the people. Therefore, we demand that CM must resign immediately, DGP Rajendran must resign too, said MK Stalin, DMK President.

"CM Edappadi Palanisamy should have immediately invited those who have been protesting for a long time. The CM who is living in the dream world of power had no eyes for the protestors and had decided he wouldn't meet any of them," read a statement by Stalin.

Internet services have been temporarily suspended in Thoothukudi or Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu from 9 pm on Wednesday (May 23) till further instruction by the administration. Around 11 people were killed in the firing by police during Sterlite Protests on May 22.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Tamil Nadu government on Wednesday removed Superintendent of Police, Thiru P Mahendran, and Collector N Venkatesh.
