Congress organises massive rally in Kalpetta against SFI vandalism

The organisers did not let police control the mob. However, a large number of personnels is in the town.

It was on Friday that SFI workers entered the office of Rahul Gandhi in Wayanad and vandalised it in protest against his 'silence' in the buffer zone issue.
