People’s Watch calls for the order of immediate closure of Sterlite Copper Smelter
Plant No. 1 and for the stoppage of construction at the Copper Smelter Plant No.2, by
the Chief Minister Edappadi Palanisamy. People’s Watch would like to highlight that
the Chief Minister’s inaction during the 100 day protest and his gross negligence
during the Tuticorin Sterlite Protest has resulted in the loss of over a dozen lives, left
several brutally injured and has caused extensive damage to property.
