Chennai: Criticising the hike in milk prices, bus fare and power tariff, DMK party workers on Monday staged state-wide protests and slammed the Jayalalithaa government.

The agitation was led by party treasurer and former Deputy Chief Minister M K Stalin in the city, while party workers staged protests in front of all district headquarters, a DMK statement here said.

The cadres raised slogans against the ruling AIADMK condemning the hike and said the common man has been badly affected by the hikes.

The party`s agitation comes ahead of proposed state-wide public meetings on April 15 condemning various `anti-people` policies of AIADMK government.

DMK chief M Karunanidhi, his daughter Kanimozhi and Stalin would address protest meetings at South Chennai, Chidambaram districts and Madurai respectively.
