State under siege

The opposition party in Kerala, the LDF, has been demanding the resignation of Kerala Chief Minister Oomen Chandi in the wake of multi-crore solar panel scam. Thousands of workers gathered around the secretariat and disrupted activities.

The CM has requested the Union Ministry to dispatch paramilitary force to take on the LDF’s blockade. Chief minister Oomen Chandy’s decision to call central forces did not go well with his own party, where the CM himself made it clear that the decision was taken without discussing with the party. The result of the siege was judicial enquiry into the solar scam. The siege brought the capital city to a stand-still and ended after 29 hours.
