Flash Hartal in Kerala: Stray incidents of violence reported
Kochi: The Kerala High Court has slammed the Youth Congress (YU) for off-hand hartal in the state after the murder of two YC activists in Kasargod on Sunday night.

The hartal by YC is equivalent to contempt of court, said the HC on Monday. The call for flash hartal is the violation of the HC ruling that no strike can be called without a prior notice of atleast seven days. Pointing out this, the HC took a suo motu case against Youth Congress for the hartal.

The HC sought to know the steps taken by the government to counter the hartal. The HC also asked the government not to stop any services, pointing out that every one is duty-bound to implement the court order.

The state wide dusk-to-dawn hartal was called past midnight by the Youth Congress, hours after its workers Kripesh and Sarath Lal were hacked to death in northern Kasargod

Meanwhile, the hartal has adversely affected Kerala with shops remaining shut and public transport keeping off the roads.

Stray incidents of violence were reported during early hours of hartal. In Ernakulam, several places such as Thoppumpady, Aluva, Palluruthy etc saw random out burst of violence. The party workers clashed with the police and vehicles including both state and private were stopped.

Idukki witnessed series of incidents that affected normal life. The office of Deputy Directorate of Education was forced to shut by hartal suppoters in Malappuram District. In Kottayam, hartal supporters attacked a showroom and forcefully tried to shut it down. Two youth congress workers have been taken into preventive custody.

Congress leader Ramesh Chennithala lashed out at the ruling CPM party and expressed his strong protest against the double murder of YC worker in Kasargode. CPM is using their party goons to destroy Congress party. Both the deceased were not involved in any kind of criminal cases or activities. The murder is a conspiracy planned by the CPM as the Lok Sabha elections are near. The government must identify the culprits and arrest them as soon as possible" he said.
