Attack on toddy shop agitators condemned

KANNUR: Prohibitionists and political and religious activists staged a protest near the controversial toddy shop at South Bazaar here on Friday to condemn the attack on the agitation by local residents demanding its closure.

The protest organised by the Janakeeya Samara Samithi was held amidst tension following the incidents on Thursday when toddy tappers loyal to both the Centre of Indian Trade Union and the Indian National Trade Union Congress vandalised the venue of the agitation and opened the toddy shop.

The attack on the agitators was widely condemned by various organisations, including political parties barring the Communist Party of India (Marxist). Large number of police personnel was posed in the vicinity in view of the tense situation in the aftermath of Thursdays incidents.
