PUDUCHERRY: AIADMK here has called for a 12 hour bandh in all four regions of Puducherry — Karaikal, Mahe and Yanam tomorrow 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 6am 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.
