Law, order situation deteriorating in Kerala: BJP

published on February 22, 2007


Alappuzha:The Kerala BJP office-bearers’ meet on Thursday decided to launch an all out strike against the Left Democratic Front (LDF) Government for its anti-people policies.



As part of the agitation, the party will organise a march to the Legislative Assembly on March 20.


The main issue the party plans to raise is price rise of essential commodities. Dharnas will be held in almost all the panchayats, where the party has units.


“The Government must prove as a model to other States by reducing the bus charges on the wake of the cut in petrol and diesel prices,” said State president of the party, PK Krishnadas, while addressing a press conference.


He said the law and order situation in the State was in total disarray. The finding of cartridges in the baggage of CPI(M) State secretary Pinarayi Vijayan, and the Bahrain tour of Hilal Mohammed, when his passport was seized is an indication of the deteriorating law and order.


“The law and order in the State is crumbling. The seizure of bullets from Pinarayi’s baggage and the Bahrain tour of Hilal Mohammed is an indication to this,” said PK Krishnadas.


The State president will also conduct a Kerala March in April from Kasargod to Thiruvananthapuram.


BJP asked the state government to register a case against CPI(M) state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan for travelling in plane with cartridges.


Addressing the party’s state executive meeting here, BJP state president PK Krishnadas said the incident exposed serious flaws in the security system in the state.


Earlier, inaugurating the meet, senior party leader O Rajagopal attacked the ruling LDF and the opposition UDF for ignoring the security threat posed by extremist and fundamentalist outfits.


It was shocking there was even a case of a person accused in a cheating case flying abroad after surrendering his passport in a court, he said. In spite of the grim security scenario, the two major coalitions in the state were unwilling to act sternly fearing that it would harm their interests based on vote bank politics, he said.


Before the meeting of the office-bearers the party convened the leaders of various morchas.
