PUDUCHERRY:The members of all trade unions of the now defunct Anglo-French Textile mills took out a procession on Tuesday pressing a charter of demands.

The workers demanded that the mill should be reopened without any further delay and modernisation should be undertaken only after obtaining Rs 500 crore from the Centre.

They said the functioning of the mill had fallen off its track due to mismanagement.

The mill had came to a grinding halt following the Thane Cyclone two years back, which left the buildings and machines devastated.The leaders pointed out that mill should be revamped and and made fully operational.
