Cong-led UDF has no role in hoax hartal: Ramesh Chennithala
Opposition leader in Kerala Assembly Ramesh Chennithala on Monday said Congress-led UDF has not extended its support to the 'hoax' hartal called through social media over Kathua incident in Jammu and Kashmir.
The Opposition leader's comment was in the wake of sporadic violence, reported in different parts of Northern Kerala in connection with the hartal.
Reacting to the incident, Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) State General Secretary KPA Majeed also denied his party's support to the agitation called by SDPI activists.
The hartal witnessed several incidents of violence affecting the normal life.
Meanwhile, a BJP delegation met Kerala DGP Loknath Behra and submitted a memorandum seeking strong action against SDPI activists who attacked several shops of BJP men in Northern Kerala.
BJP President Kummanam Rajasekharan alleged that extremist organisations getting the support of government was indulging in violence and attacking the BJP men.
