There is no respite to the city residents, with the ‘solar scam’ protests on the arterial MG Road taking a violent turn yesterday. There were violent clashes between supporters of the youth wing organisations of the Congress and CPI, leaving many injured. City police to take out a route march along the Museum Police Station road, led by the Commissioner Mr. P Vijayan.
Since the press reports indicate that the heavily outnumbered communist supporters bore the brunt of the violence, there might be massive protests in the city today. All are advised to avoid venturing out into the city centre today, unless absolutely necessary.
