The BJP will block Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and other ministers on road from today in protest over the police action against BJP state general secretary K Surendran.
The protest commenced by blocking chief minister on his way to Chengannur to attend a programme on Sunday. The protestors waved black flags at the CM on the way and police quickly removed them from the route.
Huge police force has been deployed in major locations at Chengannur.
The police have taken action to prevent the protesters from reaching the venue. Water cannon, grenade launcher and other equipment have been arranged by the police in order to confront security issues.
Surendran has been continuously in jail for the last many after he was first arrested for defying prohibitory orders at Nilakal last month.
