CPI-M condemns arrest Left leaders

New Delhi, March 27 : The CPI-M has condemned the arrest of its Andhra Pradesh secretary B.V. Raghavulu as well as other Left leaders in Hyderabad.

Ten Left parties in Andhra Pradesh had jointly called for a protest against the exorbitant hike in the electricity charges in the state, the Communist Party of India-Marxist said.

A hunger strike continued for five days when the Andhra Pradesh assembly was in session. As soon as the session ended, the state government cracked down on the protesting leaders.

"Such brutal attacks on popular protests against the burdens being imposed on the people will not be tolerated," the CPI-M said.
