BJP to take out SP office march

KOCHI: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will take out a march to the office of the Superintendent of Police at Aluva on Tuesday in protest against �the increasing Talibanism in the State.

Addressing a press conference here on Monday, A.N. Radhakrishnan, State general secretary of the party, accused the Home Ministry of having failed to curb militant activities in the State. He said that places like Aluva have become a safe haven for terrorists.

Referring to the attack on T. J. Joseph, professor and head of the department of Malayalam at Newman College, Thodupzha, he said that the incident was a blot on the ministry and the police, which failed to check the growth of terror elements in the State.

Blaming Education Minister M.A. Baby for his alleged remarks portraying Mr. Joseph in bad light at a meeting in Kozhikode on Sunday, Mr. Radhakrishnan termed the Ministers observations against Mr. Joseph as �inhuman.

He said that Mr. Babys remarks would have caused considerable pain to the family members of the professor, who were already under severe stress following Sundays incident.
