Coimbatore: Over 500 prisoners lodged in the
central prison here today boycotted their breakfast and lunch,
to protest against the Kerala Government`s stance on
Mullaperiyar Dam issue.
As a section of prisoners decided to boycott breakfast,
more prisoners and undertrials joined them by expressing
solidarity and sought to protect the rights of Tamil Nadu
over the dam and continued the boycott of lunch also.
Though the officials tried to persuade the prisoners to
not to boycott the food, they were firm on their stand and
informed that they will take only dinner, the sources said.
