The people of Iruvappapuram panchayat lost their panchayat in 1964. Since there is no development thereafter now they are demanding the panchayat through addressing the issue in the way of non violent struggle. Last more than ninty six days they are observing continuos fasting .But the district administration does not take any action for the people's demand.On the other side the police is threatening the people. The police is trying to file false case against the non violent protestor.
Condemning this on last 3rd january 2008 the MANITHA URIMAIKKANA KUDIMAKKAL IYAKKAM staged an agitation in front of tuticorin collector office. Mr.C.J.Rajan presided the protest. Mr.Athisayakumar (Makkal urimaikuzhu)Mr.Ganapathy subbramanian(CPI) and Mr.Jeevankumar (Meetchi people's movement )participated in the protest and condemned the district administration and police. After winded up the protest the participants went to iruvappauram and had a discussion with the people for further action.
