Left Democratic Front state committee today decided to launch indefinite massive siege of the Cliff House, the official residence of the Kerala Chief Minister from December 9 demanding the resignation solar scam tainted Oommen Chandy. The details will be finalized at the LDF meeting to be held on November 18, LDF convener Vaikom Vishwan told reporters.
The siege has been planned as the Chief Minister has backtracked on his promises to appoint a sitting judge to probe the solar scam following the historic siege of the state Secretariat at Thiruvananthapuram in August 2013.
The meeting presided over by Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan also decided to organize two campaign jathas prior to the siege of the Cliff House. Both Jathas will begin on November 1 and conclude on 13. The northern Jatha led by deputy leader of opposition Kodiyeri Balakrishnan will start from Uppala in Kasargode. CPI state secretary Pannian Raveendran will inaugurate northern Jatha, which will cover Kasargode, Kannur, Wayanad, Kozhikode, Malappuram and Palakkad districts and will culminate at Thrissur.
The Southern Jatha led by CPI legislative party leader C Divakaran will be inaugurated by Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan at Eranakulam. The Jathas will cover Idukki, Pathanamthitta, Kottayam, Alappuzha, kollam districts and culminate at Thiruvananthapuram.
In the meanwhile, a Kerala state plenum of the CPI(M) will be held from November 27 to 28, 2013 at Palakkad. This plenum will be an extended meeting of the state committee. A massive rally will also be held at Palakkad on the concluding day on November 28.
