Tamil Nadu crusher and quarry owners met the Coimbatore District Collector and submitted a petition regarding the protest. K Chandraprakash, Managing Director of KCP Infra Limited and President of Crusher and Quarry Welfare Association, Executives Ammasaiyappan, Selvaraj, Nandhakumar, Palanisamy and more than 50 workers working in crusher, quarries met and discussed.

Tamil Nadu Government, Department of Mineral Resources and Geology did not hold any talks regarding the ongoing protest. Added, they din’t even attempt to resolve the claims. Thousands of Tipper lorries(Dumper Trucks) ,JCB ,Poclain and other vehicles and machines are parked in quarries and crushers is on hold.

In 5 days there has been a revenue loss of about 7000 crore rupees at the state level. If this situation continues, the situation will worsen. Action taken against licensed quarries as like the same action taken against unlicensed quarries. There is no ban on exploration in quarries, they said.


Following this, the Managing Director of KCP Infra Limited and president of Crusher and Quarry Association K. Chandra Prakash stated that, if the government does not take immediate action within a week, there will be a situation where the quarries will have to be handed back to the government. Disappointment is the only result we got ended up with this strike. They are imposing unimaginable fines in crores.

Quarry owner Palaniyandi in Trichy was fined Rs 20 crore. A fine of Rs 45 crore was imposed on 4 quarries in Karur. If an auto driver is fined 50 lakh rupees for breaking the rules, how will he do business? We strongly condemn for such actions against the quarry industry. If this is the case, there is no other option but to hand over the quarries to the government. He also added that the government should find a smooth solution to this problem.
