The Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI (M)) has called for its supporters to take part in protests across Tamil Nadu state on Tuesday, October 20. The demonstrations are being held to demand that state Governor Banwarilal Purohit reserves places in medical university courses for students from government schools. CPI (M) supporters will gather outside party headquarters across the state and at the Raj Bhavan in Chennai.
The demonstrations will likely be accompanied by a heightened security presence and localized disruptions to transport.
Those in Tamil Nadu are advised to monitor the situation, avoid the demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate disruptions to transport, and obey all instructions issued by local authorities.
