Pondicherry Oct. 3 . Volunteers and leaders of parties attached to the Committee for Protection of Rights of Pondicherry Farmers on Cauvery Water today courted arrest when they attempted to go in a procession to picket the Assembly to urge the administration to convene an all-party meet on the issue.
