Thiruvananthapuram: Governor Arif Mohammed Khan on Thursday slammed the Kerala government over the anti-port protests in Vizhinjam. Speaking to journalists in the capital, the Governor said, “The government is not interested in maintaining law and order or doing things for administration.”
He also warned that if the government’s bill is against the University Grants Commission (UGC) norms, then it will not become a law.
“I am not aware of the police station attack. It will be investigated,” he added.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said on Thursday that such agitations were with a "clear intention" to destroy tranquillity in the society and upset the peaceful life of the people.
Appreciating the police personnel for the handling of the issue, he said their courageous restraint was the reason why things did not turn out the way the attackers intended.
The protesters attacked Vizhinjam police station on the night of November 27, injuring several policemen.
