Puducherry: AIADMK called for a 12-hour bandh in all four regions of Puducherry -- Karaikal, Mahe and Yanam on Saturday in protest against the 'false case' imposed on party leader Jayalalithaa, who has been convicted in an illegal assets case.
A Ravindran, Uppalam town secretary of AIADMK told reporters here that the bandh would commence from 6 AM tomorrow in protest against the 'false case' imposed on Jayalalithaa and her 'wrongful imprisonment'.
Four of the five AIADMK legislators, barring legislature party leader P Puroshothaman were present at the press meet.
Asked about the absence of Puroshothaman, Ravindran said he was away in Karaikal, participating in a fast by party workers in protest against the conviction of their leader.
