CPI(M) stages road roko

Tiruchi Bureau

THANJAVUR: A total of 3,673 cadre of Communist Party of India (Marxist), including women, were arrested on Saturday when they resorted to road blockades at various places in Thanjavur, Tiruvarur and Nagapattinam districts demanding increase in compensation for crop and property loss suffered during the recent heavy rains.

They demanded compensation of Rs. 15,000 per acre for paddy crops and Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 10,000 for houses damaged in the delta districts. They also demanded the State government to allocate more funds for undertaking flood relief works and also initiate steps to prevent recurrence of floods during monsoon. The state government should approach the Centre immediately for adequate financial assistance, they demanded.

Evoking strong opposition to the government's announcement of a compensation of Rs.8,000 per hectare, the cadre termed it a mockery of the farming class. While 1,539 were arrested in Tiruvarur district, 1,334 were arrested in Nagapattinam and 800 in Thanjavur district.

In Thanjavur, CPI (M) cadre led by district committee members Neelamegam and Jeevakumar were arrested by the police at the old bus stand.

At Tiruvarur, cadre led by I. V. Nagarajan, secretary of district unit of the party, were arrested at Nagapattinam road junction.
