UNPRECEDENTED SUPPORT FOR BANDH CALLED AGAINST A RAJA’S COMMENTS: A WAKE-UP CALL FOR DRAVIDIANIST LEADERS?
The response to a bandh called to protest against the obscene remarks of Andimuthu Raja has surprised many.
The bandh saw considerable support in the hilly regions of the Coimbatore district especially Ooty, Gudalur, Coonoor and Kotagiri, and also in Manjur, Annur and Mettupalayam areas. The bandh call was given by Hindu Munnani or Hindu Front, a Sangh Parivar organisation. The bandh was spontaneous and the shutdown mostly voluntary.
