CPI (M) activists hoisted a black flag at Almaspet here on Saturday deploring the increase in power tariff.

CPI (M) leaders S. Magbul Basha and B. Manohar flayed the Government for burdening the poor and middle classes. They criticised Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy for not rolling back the power tariff despite his claims that he would ensure that power tariff would not increase steeply.
