CPI(ML) calls road blockade in Jharkhand

india Updated: Jun 20, 2006 12:47 IST

After three-day statewide demonstration in its demand to quash the 'attempt to murder case' against CPI (ML) general secretary Dipankar Bhattacharya, the party's Jharkhand unit has called a blockade on June 26 in the state.

The party on Monday warned that if the government did not listen to their repeated pleas, they would intensify their agitation.

CPI(ML) sources said their recently concluded three-day statewide demonstration did not trigger any response from the government and the party has now decided to stage a symbolic blockade on June 26.

Bhattacharrya was arrested on March one, 2001, following a demonstration in front of the Assembly that turned violent in protest against police firing at Tapkara.

The police also framed a case charging the leader with attempt to murder.

Last month a party delegation had met Chief Minister Arjun Munda and submitted a memorandum demanding withdrawal of the case against Bhattacharya.
