The Opposition Left Democratic Front (LDF) on Monday called upon its activists to block Chief Minister Oommen Chandy’s mass contact programme, as part of its protest campaign against the Chief Minister for his alleged involvement in the solar scam.
LDF convenor Vaikom Viswan said that the Left parties had been blocking Chief Minister’s official programmes and it would continue.
“We have already decided to intensify our blockades and our activists will show black flags during all his programmes,” the LDF convenor said.
The Chief Minister had said that the mass contact programme, which won the UN recognition, in its new edition would cover all 14 districts and the first event would be held here on October 18.
CPM Thiruvananthapuram district secretary Kadakampally Surendran said that the mass contact programme in the district would be blocked.
“We will continue our protest against Chandy and we will ensure maximum participation to block Chandy during the mass contact programme,” he said.
The LDF district committee said in a statement that the Left would block Chandy during the mass contact programme at Chandrasekaran Nair Stadium on October 18 and wave black flags.
The Left Democratic Front district committee which met here had decided to intensify its protest against the Chief Minister against the backdrop of his office being avoided from the terms of reference.
CPM state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan had earlier warned that the Left Democratic Front would not allow the Chief Minister to attend the mass contact programmes in any district.
The party had earlier threatened that the Chief Minister will not be allowed to attend any public function in the wake of his alleged involvement in the solar scam.
