Tamil Nadu boiling and raging with anti-Sri Lanka protests continued on Thursday with the agitations having filtered into more strata of society other than the student community in several districts and towns of Tamil Nadu.

Observance of fasts, picketing, blocking trains, and formation of human chain continued on Thursday even after a U.S.-sponsored resolution against Sri Lanka and supported by India was adopted at the at the U.N. Human Rights Council.

A group of students blocked the Korba-bound train near North Coimbatore Junction. Similarly, the Intercity Express was blocked near the SIHS colony by a group of students.

Activists of Hanuman Sena tried to lock the Central Telegraph Office and staged a demonstration.

The police foiled an attempt by a group of 60 students to picket the Air Force office in Red Fields. Three hundred students of the Coimbatore Medical College formed a human chain in Gandhipuram in the evening.

Members of the Coimbatore Bar Association observed a fast in front of the Combined District Sessions court complex.

About 300 members of the women’s wing of the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam observed fast at Gandhipuram.

Students tried to enter the telegraph office and BSNL exchange on State Bank Road.

Lawyers practicing in various courts in Pollachi, Mettuppalayam, and Valparai abstained from courts and staged a demonstration. People observed a fast at Thondamuthur and Perur in Coimbatore and at Ayyampalayam in Pollachi.

A fast was observed at Angalakurichi, near Pollachi. Students of Bharathiar University continued with their relay fast on Thursday too.
By and large, the agitations remained peaceful on Thursday, the police said.

    Resolve what Raviraj? Don't you think Tamils also are to blame? The diaspora also played a big part by spreading false allegations and buying support with their money. If a genuine effort had been made things would have been different but any form of assistance offered was always with hidden agendas.

    It's not Sinhalese or Tamils. Any civilized country will not support war crimes. You may seen from the history Germany, Rwanda, Bosnia etc.

    kumar Friday, 22 March 2013 10:32 AM

    May be the germs but that will only affect war criminals and their supporters.

    Very good move TN , keep it up. Best wishes for the brothers.

    Ranjit. S Friday, 22 March 2013 07:16 AM

    More the merrier. It is India's problem and not ours. What can they do, drop 'parripu' on us?

    lionheart Friday, 22 March 2013 10:56 AM

    Thank you TN. Keep ruining India. That is good for us. Hahahahahahaha. You have fallen hook line and sinker into the US trap of attempting to use the SL issue to neutralise the south asian region. Tamils will ultimately get nothing from all this. Just try and live with us in peace. After all we do not attack you on the roads like people in TN do to us. Keep it up TN> Please call a general strike. A general strike really desables the economy. That is what we want.

    Making something out of nothing !

    Jackmart Friday, 22 March 2013 07:50 AM

    When it comes to tamils entire world joins up. When we sinhalese suffered no one was there to even inquire.

    rarviraj Friday, 22 March 2013 07:53 AM

    the Sinhalese had plenty of opportunities to resolve this with several foreign countries helping them, but they chose not to, so don't blame others, as you maintained it was an internal problem

    himalayan Friday, 22 March 2013 09:56 AM

    @ sajitha Not even roads....they are being financed and built through grants and technicians from Japan, India, Korea and EUs. Is this the development we claim to have done??
    This triumphalism will only end when the watchman themselves will take away the country's treasure, self-earned as well as the borrowed one.....

    DAVID Friday, 22 March 2013 08:02 AM

    BOYS KEEP IT UP UNTIL WE ACHIEVE OUR GOAL.

    himalayan Friday, 22 March 2013 10:02 AM

    We didn't even build roads for them....whatever development has come up is bcoz of grants and technical assistance received from Japan, India, Korea and EU countries. We are just putting MADE IN SL stamp over there. The triumphalism will only end when the treasury will be empty and we all will be Chinese slave!!

    jjacoob Friday, 22 March 2013 10:03 AM

    somebody said Pirabaharan is in the back stage and inducing all these violence ( terrorism?) in India in particular tamil nadu.. Sri Lanka should now ask india to catch him and extradite to sri lanka ti face a trial to find out who killed whom !!!
    Otherwise send that EPDF guy with a gun and he will finish it off what he failed several years ago !!!

    sajitha Friday, 22 March 2013 08:15 AM

    As a sinhalese I totally agree with you. For three years people here were only interested in celebrating the victory.. what have they done to the people of North and Est except for building roads and bridges...that is all!!!!!!!

    lal Friday, 22 March 2013 10:19 AM

    This is what the so called International Comminity wants. To divide and destabilise countries like India, Sri Lanka. They have missed their target sri lanka and have hit India instead. Stupid Indians went along with US,UK, Canada to destabilise Sri Lanka and have shot themselves in the foot.

    Suq Madique Friday, 22 March 2013 11:49 AM

    David...no more goals, the match is over!
