"We always make sure that community and people of Tuticorin prosper with us. I'm totally committed to people at large and community and with their wish and prosperity, we would like to continue business. I assure you I'm fully committed to environment and people," Agarwal said.

Union Mome Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday sought a report from Tamil Nadu government in connection with the violence during Anti-Sterlite protest in Tuticorin which claimed 13 lives.

Tamil Nadu opposition leader MK Stalin has demanded the resignation of the CM and DGP T K Rajendran over the anti-Sterlite violence. He had said Palaniswami and Rajendran should take moral responsibility for the incident and resign.
