Demonetisation: DMK to hold state wide protests on 28 November


With CPI(M) deciding to observe 28 November as ‘All-India Protest Day,’ on the Centre’s demonetisation issue, DMK today said it would stage protests outside central government offices in the state on that day.

Party chief M Karunanidhi said ‘opposition leaders’– the Left parties — had decided to hold countrywide protests against the ruling BJP on the issue and that DMK will protest outside central government offices in Tamil Nadu.
