SDPI alleges conspiracy

KANNUR: District leaders of the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), political wing of the Popular Front of India (PFI), have alleged a conspiracy involving the police and political parties behind the recent police raids at SDPI offices and residences of party workers.

SDPI district president Pallipram Prabhakaran and district general secretary Noushad Punnakkal said at a press conference here on Wednesday that the raids at SDPI offices in the district were an assault on freedom of opinion and the political activities envisaged in the Constitution.

The SDPI being a political party registered as per the instruction of the Election Commission of India, its involvement in elections in different States over the past one year and its decision to contest the coming local body elections in the State had earned the hostility of the mainstream political leadership. The raids were part of a conspiracy hatched by the upper caste mindset, they said.
