Kerala all party meeting decides to take action against Kannur culpritsMarch 15th, 2008 - 5:59 pm ICT by admin
Kannur, Mar 15 (ANI): An all Party meeting convened by the Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanadan took a decision to have peace meetings in the violence hit areas of Kannur District and also to take action against those indulging in activities detrimental to peace.
The District Administration and the police have been given the responsibility for the timely evaluation of the situation in Kannur.
Leaders of various political parties, including the Communist Party of India-Marxist CPI (M), the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress participated in the meeting.
Kannur District has been a hotbed of political violence between the CPI-M and the BJP-Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh combine.
The current bout of violence started when an RSS leader was attacked in Thalassery town March on 12. Three people lost their lives in a retaliatory attack by RSS and BJP activists.
The BJP has demanded the exit of the Left Democratic Front (LDF) Government in Kerala in the wake of a Kerala High Court order to deploy central forces to prevent political clashes in Kannur District. The Left parties have objected to this demand strongly. Clashes between BJP and CPI (M) have so far resulted in the death of seven people. (ANI)
