“We were not against people’s protest. What was against was the attempt to create a riot behind it. Riots and attacks by cops are outrageous. We said this is not right. The government will complete the rehabilitation of Vizhinjam The government has accepted six of the seven things demanded by the protesters in Vizhinjam,” said MV Govindan.
