PFI announces bandh against NIA-ED raid, strike in Kerala today

 THIRUANATHPURAM:The Popular Front of India (PFI) has  called for a strike on Friday  to protest the raids by the investigating agencies at its offices, leaders' homes and premises, led by the NIA. PFI has announced a 12-hour strike from 6 am to 6 pm on Friday.

PFI state general secretary Abdul Sattar in his statement condemned the use of state machinery and said that central agencies were being used to silence the voice of dissent. Abdul Sattar said the arrest of PFI leaders could not be justified.

PFI in its statement said that the state committee of PFI felt that the arrests of the leaders of the organization were part of state sponsored terrorism. The state general secretary of PFI said that the strike will be held against the RSS-controlled government's attempt to suppress the voice of dissent by using central agencies.



 On the other hand, the state unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), however, termed the proposed strike as unnecessary and urged the state government to take strict action against it. BJP state unit chief K. Surendran alleged that all the strikes called earlier by the PFI have led to riots. He said that the state authorities should make adequate arrangements to adequately safeguard the life and property of the people.

 Surendran also alleged that the PFI is trying to tackle terrorism cases through muscle power and asked its leadership to keep in mind that India is a democratic country and not a religious one. Surendran said in a statement that despite the high court's strong stand against unnecessary strike, the government in the state is showing a soft approach towards PFI keeping an eye on the vote bank.

On Thursday, a joint team of NIA, ED and state police forces arrested more than 100 PFI leaders. According to reports, the joint team conducted raids in 10 states. During the raid, 22 people were arrested from Kerala. 20 people have been arrested from Maharashtra and Karnataka, 5 from Andhra Pradesh, 9 from Assam, 3 from Delhi, 8 from UP and 2 from Rajasthan.
