Thiruvananthapuram, May 27(UNI) Leader of the Opposition in the Kerala Assembly Oommen Chandy today alleged that the CPI(M)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF) Government had brutally suppressed public ire against scuttling Food Security project by it.
Stating that the public ire against the skyrocketing prices and food scarcity was reflected in the Youth Congress march to all the district headquarters in the state, he said the government registered false cases against workers and beat them up brutally.
The government declared that it would not implement the food security project in the state, he charged in a statement.
Though the agitating Youth Congress workers had not attacked police or any vehicles anywhere, nine people in Kozhikode and eight people in Alappuzha were injured in the police action, he alleged.
If the implementation of the project was delayed, the Left Government would have to face serious agitations, he warned.
In another statement, UDF Convener P P Thankachan said the lathicharge against Youth Congress workers without any provocation were ''cruel and protestable.'' The public should isolate the officials and the CPI(M) leaders, who were behind the brutal action, he said.
