BJP to intensify its stir demanding Thomas Chandy’s resignation

BJP in Kerala decided to intensify its stir demanding resignation of Transport Minister Thomas Chandy, facing charges of encroachment of backwaters and violation of land rules.

“BJP cadres will stage a blockade of the state secretariat at Thiruvananthapuram on November 13 as part of expanding our stir state-wide,” party state general secretary K. Surendran told after a BJP state committee meeting in Alappuzha.

Alleging that Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan was protecting the minister, he said that the party would continue its agitation till Chandy resigned.

The charges against Chandy are that a tourist resort owned by him at Kuttanad in the district has encroached upon backwaters and also violated land rules while constructing parking space.

The BJP leader repeated his party’s charge that Kerala has become a fertile land for ‘jihadi terror’ under LDF rule.

“CPI(M) is following a line that helps the terror group grow in the state”, Surendran alleged.
