Oppn in Kerala flouts social distancing norms while protesting

Guwahati: Youth wingers of BJP, Congress and IUML smashed all the guidelines of social distancing yesterday while demanding the resignation of CM Pinarayi Vijayan in the gold smuggling case at Kerela.

Over 6,500 COVID-19 cases have been reported in the state so far and the numbers are going up each day.

Over 50 Youth Congress activists marched to Mr. Vijayan's house at Pinarayi in Kannur and tried to climb over the barricades, and the police used water cannons to disperse them.

In Kozhikode, 14 Youth League activists were injured when police resorted to lathi-charge to disperse them after they pelted stones on being prevented from marching to the Collectorate.

A few journalists were also injured in the clashes.

In Kollam and Alappuzha too, the marches turned violent.

It is to be noted that Customs had seized over 30 kg of gold from baggage, carrying the name of a diplomatic person that had landed by air cargo at the International airport here on Sunday. The case had taken political overtones after it was found that a woman suspect had been working for the state IT department, a portfolio held by the Chief Minister. She was later sacked.
