While 1,000 cadres of various political parties including the DMK took part in the protest here, 800 activists participated in the demonstration held in Tirupur, they said.
District leaders of Congress, CPIM, CPI, VCK, and Thanthai Periyar Dravida Kazhakam participated in the demonstration.
Protests had erupted in Tamil Nadu soon after Anitha, daughter of a daily wage earner, allegedly hanged herself at her house in Ariyalur district on September 1.
She was reportedly upset after reports emerged that Tamil Nadu would not be exempted from the ambit of National Eligibility-Cum-Entrance Test.
