Jail bharo: Anantkumar, Eshwarappa court arrest

June 22, 2012 20:02 IST

Bharatiya Janata Party National General Secretary Anantkumar and state unit President K S Eswarappa were among hundreds of party workers who courted arrest in Bengaluru on Friday, as part of the party's 'jail bharo' programme against price rise and other issues.

BJP activists, including some of its Members of Legislative Assembly C T Ravi, Ravi Subramanya and others staged a road roko for some time near the Town Hall, the busiest traffic junction. They were taken into preventive custody and released later.

Anantkumar and Eswarappa, who addressed the gathering, slammed the United Progressive Alliance government for its 'failure' to contain inflation.
