Youth Congress protest against DGP in Kannur
Kannur: A group of Youth Congress workers conducted a sudden protest against DGP Loknath Behera here over the move to prosecute KPCC president Mullappally Ramachandran. Police arrested Youth Congress workers who staged the protest.
Youth Congress workers led by Kannur constituency unit member Rijil Makkutty started protest against DGP when he was coming out after delivering felicitation speech at the State Conference of Kerala Police Officers Association.
The protestors raised placards written ‘DGP Loknath Behera branch secretary’ and his picture. They also shouted slogans that DGP is acting as CPM branch secretary and is not working as a policeman.
The government granted permission to DGP Loknath Behera to proceed with legal action against Mullappally Ramachandran for his remark that the DGP is working as CPM branch secretary.
Following this, Congress leaders harshly criticised the chief minister and the DGP alleging that such an extraordinary action is taken against a critical remark for the first time in the state.
