Puducherry unit of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) has decided to move the Madras High Court to save the affected cane growers and secure their dues from the management of the Lingareddippalayam cooperative sugar mills here.
The party also flayed the mill for its failure to disburse the price of sugarcane to the cane growers, supplied to the mill for the year 2012-13.
A resolution to this effect was adopted at an office bearers meeting of the party here on Sunday, according to a release from party convenor Dr M A S Subramanian.
The party also flayed the territorial administration for the manifold hike in the power tariff and demanded its immediate withdrawal.
Resolutions urging the administration to recommend a CBI probe into the alleged scam in financial assistance scheme for CENTAC students, steps to reopen the AFT mills, action to secure the release of Karaikal fishermen languishing in Sri Lankan prisons, to drop the move to close down cooperative institutions and to pay salary to the government institution workers who were not paid for several months, among others were adopted in the meeting.
The meeting which was chaired by Subramanian condoled the death of Daily Thanthi director, Sivanthi Adityan, former parliament member, Kuppusamy and three other party functionaries.
