The district is likely to witness an Indian Union Muslim League (IUML)-Left Democratic Front (LDF) clash for the second time in two months.

Even as the LDF district committee has decided to block Chief Minister Oommen Chandy from attending the mass contact programme scheduled to be held in the district on November 4, the Youth League is planning to give protection to the chief minister from LDF activists.

All the parties in the LDF have decided to prevent the chief minister from attending the programme, in protest against his alleged involvement in the solar scam. The LDF is planning to block all the entrances to the programme venue.

“We have decided to prevent the chief minister from attending the mass contact programme in protest against his involvement in the solar scam. He has no right to attend such a programme when he is at the centre of many controversies. We will be there among the people who come to participate in the programme,” CPM district secretary P P Vasudevan said.

The attempt of the LDF to prevent the chief minister from attending the inauguration of the Manjeri Medical College in September had ended in an LDF-Youth League clash, in which several party workers, police personnel and a mediaperson were injured.

Meanwhile, the Youth League has decided to give protection to the chief minister from the LDF members.

“We will be there in the forefront with the common man to save the chief minister from protesters on November 4. Mass contact programme is for the poor people in the state and it has even been approved by the United Nations. So it is a protest against the interest of the common man in the district, which the Youth League will not allow in the soil of Malappuram,” Youth League district president Naushad Mannissery said.

The decision of the Youth League to give protection to the chief minister from the LDF members is likely to result in a clash.
