Kerala CM faces Youth Congress protest on plane

Two young Congress workers, apparently wearing black shirts, waved slogans against Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on board a flight he was traveling from Kannur to Thiruvananthapuram on Monday.

State Deputy Chairman of the Youth Congress and former MP KS Sabarinathan posted a three-second video on social media in which the two workers of the organization were seen waving slogans against the Chief Minister demanding Vijayan’s resignation and a man who was accompanying the chief minister pushed them away.

In a Facebook post, Sabarinathan alleged that it was CPI(M) senior leader and LDF official EP Jayarajan who pushed the Youth Congress workers to protest. A CPI(M) leader alleged that the Youth Congress workers were trying to attack Vijayan inside the plane. The incident reportedly happened when the flight landed at Thiruvananthapuram airport. The protesters, posing as passengers, reportedly boarded the flight at Kannur airport. Kerala chief minister faces protests from Congress and BJP workers since gold smuggling chief defendant Swapna Suresh claimed he and his family members played a game role in certain smuggling activities.
