THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and his Cabinet colleagues will stage a sit- in in front of the Reserve Bank of India here on Friday to protest against the Centre’s move to wreck the cooperative sector.

“Any attempt to wreck the cooperative sector in the state will be strongly resisted. The dharna will be from 10 am to 5 pm,” Pinarayi said on Thursday. He said the UDF leaders too have pledged their support to the government’s efforts to save the cooperative sector.

“The dharna is an attempt to express the general sentiments of the people against the Central Government’s stand against the cooperative sector,” he said.

Pinarayi said an all-party meet would be convened on November 21 to discuss steps to be taken to solve the crisis. He said BJP would also be invited to the parley.

Senior BJP leader and MLA O Rajagopal had stated that both the LDF and UDF were colluding to protect hoarders of black money. “The BJP has taken a political stand, forcing a leader of Rajagopal’s stature to come out with an absurd statement,” Pinarayi said.
