CM to visit slain Youth Congress activists’ houses; DCC says no
Kasaragod: The District Congress Committee (DCC) came against the decision of chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan to visit the houses of the two Youth Congress activists Sarath Lal and Kripesh who were murdered recently at Periya here.
Kasaragod DCC has made its stance clear that it wouldn’t allow the chief minister to visit the houses of Sarath Lal and Kripesh even after the CPM leaders contacted Congress leaders. CPM district secretary M V Balakrishnan the other day had told DCC president Hakkim Kunnil about chief minister's wish to visit the houses. A response on the matter wasn’t given to CPM by the DCC president so far. However, Hakkim told Mathrubhumi News that such a move cannot be allowed by them.
He further said that anger over the murders is still existing among party workers and there could be protests. Party won’t be responsible for anything that happens over this, said Hakkim.
However, according to reports, chief minister may not visit the houses of Sarath and Kripesh.
Amid the tensing situation after the twin murders in Periya, chief minister will reach Kasaragod on Friday. He will lay foundation stone for the new CPM district office at Kasaragod at 10 am and will inaugurate the celebration of 1000th governing day of the LDF government. Visit to the slain Youth Congress activists' houses is not scheduled in the minister's programme. District secretary M V Balakrishnan said that according to the present situation, chief minister might not visit the houses.
District congress committee is conducting a march one kilometre away from the venue at Kanhangad where CM is participating. The march is conducted demanding CBI probe into the twin murder at Periya.
