Thiruvananthapuram: KPCC President K Sudhakaran said they would observe 'black day' on Tuesday in protest against CPM workers vandalising 'Indira Bhavan' in Thiruvananthapuram. He warned that they would defend and retaliate if CPM resumed violent attacks.
Opposition leader VD Satheesan said that CPM's move to unleash attacks on KPCC headquarters and congress offices in the state blatantly ignores basic political decorum. He pointed out that a senior leader like AK Antony, who was inside the headquarters during the attack, escaped unhurt. "CPM and DYFI had publically threatened KPCC president and opposition leader. It is bizarre that a peaceful protest from youth congress workers inside the plane is termed a terrorist act. If there is any violation of rules, the officials can file a case. However, EP Jayarajan should also be booked for assaulting youth congress workers," he added.
Former opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala also condemned the attack on KPCC headquarters. He remarked that the incident was something that is unheard off. He also warned CPM that congress would strongly retaliate if they continued this kind of attitude. He demanded the state police take action against the assailants.
