New Delhi, Jan 24: The Supreme Court on Thursday directed Tamil Nadu government to provide the power supply to the Sterlite copper smelter plant in Thoothukudi, immediately.

Earlier this month, the apex court had refused to stay the green tribunal’s order of setting aside the state government’s decision to shut the copper plant.

Tamil Nadu had ordered the closure of the Tuticorin plant and disconnected electricity supply to the unit, following protests and the death of 13 persons in police firing on May 22 last year.
