Thiruvananthapuram: The LDF rule in Kerala witnessed politicisation of the police force, accused MLA PC Vishnunadh.

He was moving an adjournment motion against the government in the state Assembly on Monday regarding the attack on the CPM state headquarters, AKG Centre.

"Police failed to nab the assailants who hurled explosive substances at AKG centre. They failed to retrieve CCTV footage from the area on time," he said.

"Police failed to prevent the attack. The police officers deployed in the vicinity of the office were withdrawn before the attack. Who ordered it?" he asked.

Kundara MLA also claimed that state police failed to take necessary action against those who ransacked KPCC and DCC offices across the state. "What action was taken against those perpetrators who posted threatening messages against Congress leaders on social media?" he asked.

The Congress leader demanded the resignation of chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan.

Earlier, the Kerala assembly on Monday decided to discuss an adjournment motion moved by the UDF opposition over the attack on AKG Centre as well as several Congress offices across the state and the alleged lack of police action in these matters.

Speaker M B Rajesh said the adjournment motion would be discussed for two hours starting from 1 pm after Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan agreed that the issue raised by the opposition requires a discussion.

Vijayan said the attack on AKG Centre was viewed with pain by lakhs of people and therefore, it can be discussed in the House.

An unidentified person had allegedly hurled an explosive substance at the state headquarters of the ruling CPM on June 30 night. However, police are yet to identify the perpetrator.

While the CPM blamed Congress, the latter rejected the allegation.
The opposition party also alleged that their party offices were targeted by the Left cadres across the state including in the districts of Kottayam, Alappuzha, and Thrissur.
