THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Tension prevailed at Kesavadasapuram here which saw violent clashes between SFI and ABVP activists the other day over the former’s attempts to set up their unit at the MG College.
The SFI activists on Wednesday morning hoisted their flag in front of the college, which is considered to be a traditional ABVP stronghold. Later in the evening, the flag was found to be destroyed which the SFI activists said was the handiwork of the ABVP.
The flag was hoisted in the presence of former MLA V Sivankutty and SFI state secretary M Vijin. They also announced the formation of an SFI unit at the college.
It was the pelting of stones at an SFI march by alleged ABVP activists which triggered Tuesday’s violence.
