All the ministers, including the Chief Minister will reach Kannur for the funeral, party sources said. "The launch of the anti-drug awareness campaign on October 2, Gandhi Jayanthi day, has now been postponed to October 6," the Chief Minister's Office said.

The anti-drug campaign would be made a continuous process and further procedures would be finalised after evaluating the first phase which extends up to November 1, Chief Minister Pinaray Vijayan had said.

An all-party meeting was convened earlier last week to discuss various aspects of the campaign and to request the support of everyone cutting across politics.
