KFC faces protests in India

Published on .

PepsiCo fast-food chain KFC's first outlet in Bangalore, India, faces closure because of protests by Rajya Raitha Sangha, a militant farmers group, against ``junk food culture.'' The group warned KFC to close its weeks-old local outlet or be shut down violently. The farmers two months ago ransacked the local office of U.S. salt and seeds company Cargill; the anti-multinational has the blessings of two former Indian prime ministers and an ex-environment minister.
