The Left parties held anti-corruption demonstrations across the State demanding a strong Lok Pal that would bring the Prime Minister under its purview.

Addressing the demonstrators in Chennai, CPI(M) State secretary G.

Sezhian, Forward Bloc MLA P.V.Kathiravan, senior advocate NGR Prasad, CPI(M) Legislature party leader A. Soundararajan participated.
