KV Biju, the activist who supports farmers' protest, was allegedly beaten up by BJP workers while pasting anti-BJP posters in Thiruvananthapuram. The incident took place at Vanchiyoor in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday.
According to Biju, the BJP activists attacked them when they were pasting the posters and they even grabbed Biju's mobile phone and deleted the contacts.
Ahead of the Assembly elections, Biju was leading the campaign against BJP in Thiruvananthapuram. The campaigns are organized at Nemom, Kazhakoottam, Vattiyoorkavu and Thiruvananthapuram Central. The activists along with Biju were engaged in pasting the posters in these constituencies for the last five days. They were even planning to conduct a rally on April 2 and to organize a convention at Nemom on April 2.
He said that he would soon file a police complaint about the incident. KV Biju is the national coordinator of Rashtriya Kisan Maha Sangh.
Earlier, the farmers protesting against the three central farm laws had decided to campaign against the BJP in five poll-bound states including Kerala. They had even announced a calendar of events to protest against the agri-marketing laws introduced by the BJP-led NDA government at the centre in September last year.
