Protests demanding resignation of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, after gold smuggling case accused Swapna Suresh alleged that the CM and his family were also involved, entered day three on Monday.
The protest that started from Kottayam on Saturday continued on Sunday and on Monday, the situation was no different in Kannur– his home town.
Last week, Swapna had claimed that Vijayan, his wife and their daughter had a role in smuggling currency and gold. Since then, the Congress and the BJP are up in arms demanding Vijayan’s resignation.
In the wake of the agitations, the state government has directed people against wearing a black mask or a black outfit to any function presided by Vijayan.
Across the six districts he travelled by road since Saturday, all those who waved black flags at him, were taken into custody by police, who are out in large numbers.
In Kannur, members of youth wing of the Congress party who were protesting in front of the Government Guest house where Vijayan was staying, were roughed up by police.
In another incident, a student activist of the Congress party, who was waving a black flag at Vijayan’s convoy, was taken into police custody, while two CPI-M workers beat him up.
Likewise, the police caned the protesters closer to the venue where Vijayan had a function.
Meanwhile, the TV channels in the state are having a field day as they are replaying all the old statements made by Vijayan with regards to his demands that the then Chief Minister Oommen Chandy if he has any morals left, he should quit after a flyby way operator Saritha Nair selling solar panels links with his staff surfaced.
They are also airing a clip of 2014 in which Vijayan can be seen saying that it’s common practise to wave a black flag to protest and what’s the big deal in it.
Veteran Congress legislator Ramesh Chennithala remarked that Vijayan has become a “nuisance” as he has disturbed the peace and tranquillity in the state as the ordinary people are finding it difficult to even move out.
With Congress leading from the front in their demand asking Vijayan to quit and the court also looking into a few petitions of Swapna and others, the protests is likely to mount. The development is also likely to rock the state Assembly which is scheduled to start on June 27.

Teachers scam: WhatsApp chat hinting question paper leak recovered
The Enforcement Directorate (ED), probing the multi-crore teachers’ recruitment scam, has recovered WhatsApp chats hinting at possible advance leaking of question papers to select candidates who took the written examination for primary teachers’ posts in West Bengal in 2016.
Sources said that the selective leaking of question papers were mainly done by the youth Trinamool Congress leader, Kuntal Ghosh, who was arrested by the ED from his residence on January 21.
The probe agency has also recovered Whatsapp chats indicating that Ghosh enjoyed the patronage of former state education minister and Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee.
From the documents seized from Ghosh’s residence, the central agency officials have also recovered copies of the admit cards of certain candidates who appeared for the recruitment examination for primary teachers in 2016.
The ED sleuths have come across the names of 35 individuals who secured jobs as teachers in state- run schools by paying money to the arrested youth leader and all of them are currently employed with different schools. Each and every one of them will be questioned to take the investigation forward.
“The recruitment scam seems to be in multiple layers, which again have sub-layers involving multiple players and multiple angles. The uncovering of one layer is leading to other layers. That’s why the investigation process is getting prolonged,” said a legal associate of ED.
The fact that question papers were leaked to select candidates was established after the ED sleuths noticed that some extremely below-average candidates, as per their academic records, scored exorbitantly in the recruitment examination.
Sources said that the marks secured in their academic examinations did not justify their scores in their optical mark recognition (OMR) sheets.
