A program unit of Centre
for Promotion of Social Concerns

People’s Watch, a programme unit of the Centre for Promotion of Social Concerns, wants Chief Minister Edappadi Palanisamy to issue orders for immediate closure of the Sterlite Copper Smelter Part No 1 and stoppage of construction at the second plant.

The inaction of Chief Minister during the 100-day Tuticorin Sterlite protest resulted in the death of a dozen innocent people and caused heavy damage to properties.

As People’s Watch monitored the protest, after due notification to the Superintendent of Police, it witnessed several lathicharge attempts against protesters. As the growing numbers of protesters approached from various sides, the police force eventually turned to guard the Collectorate.
