Stop mining at Gundaru river, says Jayalalithaa

AIADMK general secretary J Jayalalithaa on Tuesday demanded that the sand quarry across Gundaru river in Tiruchuzhi taluk in Virudhunagar district should be closed down immediately as all norms for quarrying had been violated there affecting the ground water table in the area, besides causing serious and horrible drinking water scarcity. AIADMK cadre will stage a demonstration in front of Tiruchuzhi taluk office on May 29 protesting the mindless sand quarrying which had been going on across Gundaru, Jayalalithaa said in a statement here.
