The Dindigul District Nilakkottai Panchayat Union Office had earlier staged a sit-in protest on behalf of Disha (December 3 Movement) over several complaints received in some gram panchayats for persons with disabilities in the Hundred Days (MGNREGA) program. After a 1 hour struggle the Regional Development Officer held talks with our State Deputy President Mr V.Mohanraj District Administrators and Branch Administrators on December 3 in the presence of the Police Inspector.
The struggle was halted because we accepted the 5 demands in it and destroyed the commitment to implement it.
