National,Politics, Fri, 24 Oct 2008 IANS

Lucknow, Oct 24(IANS) Over 80 activists of the Samajwadi Party, including several legislators, were jailed Friday after they agitated against the ruling Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in Uttar Pradesh's Sultanpur district, the police said.


'All these activists, who were involved in violence and vandalising public properties, failed to give bail bonds after which they were sent to jail on Friday,' S.K. Singh, additional superintendent of police, told IANS on telephone.



Several SP activists and leaders across the state were injured Thursday as they fought a pitched battle with the police on the last day of their three-day long state-wide agitation against the alleged 'misrule' of the BSP government.



The police had cane-charged SP activists at various places, including Varanasi, Kanpur, Jhansi, Lucknow and Sultanpur, after they broke the police cordon and stormed the collectorate premises, raising anti-BSP slogans.



Several SP activists across the state were been taken into custody on charges of rioting and attacking police personnel.
