Jaipur: CPI(M) workers here on Monday demonstrated here against the arrest of a party MLA in a case of causing damage to public property.
Pawan Duggal was taken into custody on May 10 under the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act for an incident during a farmers` agitation in Sriganganagar in 2004.
"The action against Duggal is politically motivated. He should be released at the earliest," party`s district secretary, Suresh Vyas told reporters here.
Several party workers demonstrated in front of collectorate circle and later handed over a representation, which was addressed to chief minister Ashok Gehlot, to a district administration official.
