KANNUR: A UDF delegation led by opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala visited Keezhattur to declare solidarity with the agitators fighting against acquisition of their paddy land for highway development.

Speaking to reporters, Chennithala said the opposition would not remain a passive spectator if the government attempted to put down the agitation by the local people with use of force. The government stand that it would not hold talks with the agitators was grossly undemocratic. Its attempt to isolate the agitators of Keezhattur and brand them as anti-socials would only prove counter-productive, he added.

The opposition leader reminded the government that the agitators of Keezhattur were not against development. Their fear was about losing their farms.

What the government should do was to explore alternatives to the bypass project.

If the government refused to do so and continued attacking the agitators, Keezhattur would turn out to be another Nandigram and Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan would meet the fate of former Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, Mr. Chennithala said.

The UDF delegation also comprised IUML legislature party leader M.K. Muneer, Abdul Khader Moulavi (IUML), George Vadakara (KC-Jacob), Illickal Augusthy (RSP), P.A. Zaheer (CMP), and Ram Mohan (FB).

The leader of the opposition also called on Chithralekha, the Dalit woman auto driver facing eviction from the piece of land allotted to her by the previous UDF government, at Eramangalam in Payyannur.

Chennithala also visited the agitators at A R Nagar at Vengara in Malappuram and interacted with Shabeena who has been on a fast for the past eight days.

He was accompanied by KNA Khader, MLA; former Minister A P Anil Kumar; and UDF district chairman Ajay Mohanan.
