Protesting against the Centre's move to close the Government Press here and shift it to Uttar Pradesh, nearly 50 Dravidar Kazhakama activists staged a demonstration here today. Raising slogans against the Centre, they alleged that it was functioning against the interests of Tamil Nadu and demanded that the Government withdraw its move. The Kazhakam treasurer Pirainudal Selvi charged the state government with remaining a mute spectator to the BJP-led government's decision, as this was a question of livelihood of over 75 workers and their families. He said the DK would intensify the stir till the Govenrment withdrew its decision to close down the 50-year-old press, which has printing orders for the coming four years, the agitators said.
