KASARGOD: Intelligence agencies have taken a serious note of the NDF ‘freedom parade’ held in the town on the Independence Day. Kasargod is one of the four centres in the state, other than Alappuzha, Thrissur and Palakkad, where the NDF freedom parade was held on Tuesday.

The NDF ‘soldiers’ wearing green fatigues and black shoes marched through the streets before the march culminated at the maidan near the mofussil bus stand. Intelligence officials, both of the Central and state, have been camping here for the past few days to view the freedom parade of the NDF, since Kasargod is a sensitive area where hartal is observed every year on December 6 to protest against the Babri Masjid demolition.

A volunteer of the NDF who led the march carried a national flag.

According to sources, it was the only symbol of nationalism. The NDF cadres who marched in the rally wore green caps which carried the insignia of ‘star’ instead of the Ashoka pillar. The march past took nearly 15 minutes to cross a point. Unlike the marches of the IUML or the INL, the volunteers had been well trained in taking out the ceremonial march, said an official of an Intelligence agency.
