Agartala: More than 1.22 lakh people on Tuesday courted arrest throughout Tripura in response to a ‘jail bharo’ agitation launched by 11 trade unions including CITU and INTUC, CITU sources claimed.

Among others, CPI-M spokesman Gautam Das, CITU leaders Shankar Dutta and Pijush Nag, Forward Block leader Biswanath Saha were arrested and later freed by the police.

CITU sources said the working people demonstrated before central government offices and railway stations throughout the state. Police said the movement was peaceful and there was no untoward incident.

Eleven central trade unions, backed by the Left parties, Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party called the country-wide ‘jail bharo’ movement to press for their six-point charter of demands. The demands include rollback of petro product price hikes and check prices of essential commodities, and social security for the unorganised labourers. (PTI)
