The Kerala BJP had launched an indefinite hunger strike on Monday while the state government is set to form a ‘million women’s wall’ during the New Year to garner support for its stand towards the Sabarimala temple
Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan has come forward denying all the allegations that the Kerala Police are behaving in a “revengeful manner” towards BJP state general secretary K Surendran.
"There are 15 cases against Surendran. Three cases are currently being investigated. Surendran is being presented in the courts on the basis of warrants. The allegations that the police behave in a revengeful manner against Surendran are baseless," chief minister said while replying to the submission filed by O Rajagopal MLA.
Meanwhile, Surendran is facing charges of blocking a 52-year-old woman, who entered the Sabarimala temple. The Ranni court denied him bail in this case. The police remanded Surendran to judicial custody.
Surendran was not released from the jail as there are several existing cases against him. However, the BJP state unit chief PS Sreedharan Pillai said that the police were trying to register false cases against Surendran. The party has launched a hunger strike against this in front of the Secretariat regarding this matter.
