                                                                       'Roll Back Power Tariff Hike'

CPI(M) Andhra Pradesh state secretary B V Raghavulu and other leaders resisted their arrest by the police in Hyderabad on July 25. Ten Left parties in the state had called for a 'Chalo Secretariat' on that day demanding rollback of electricity tariff hike and against frequent power cuts. CPI state secretary K Narayana and hundreds of others were also arrested by the police as they marched towards the secretariat building from various routes, taking the heavily deployed police by surprise.
