Strike called by DMK-TESO underway

Tamil nadu      The dawn-to-dusk general strike called by DMK-backed pro-Sri Lankan Tamil outfit TESO began on Tuesday morning with no untoward incident reported so far.

Shops in some places were closed and a close watch was being maintained on the situation, police said. However, no untoward incident was reported, they said.

DMK-backed Tamil Ealam Supporters’ Organisation had called for a general strike on Tuesday to press India to vote in favour of a US-sponsored resolution against Sri Lanka at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) meeting in Geneva. DMK chief M Karunanidhi, who had revived TESO in 2012 floated by him in the 1980s, had called for peaceful protests. (The Times of India)
