Some activists of Yuva Morcha, the youth wing of BJP, on Sunday attempted to show black flags at Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in Thiruvananthapuram while protesting over the issue of fees and admission in private self-financing medical colleges. The incident occurred when the chief minister was returning after paying floral tributes to the statue of Mahatma Gandhi at Gandhi Bhavan at Thycaud here on his 147th birth anniversary, police said.

The Morcha activists ran behind Vijayan’s car and convoy holding black flags and raising slogans, but were removed from there immediately, they said. Besides the Yuva Morcha, outfits like Youth Congress and Kerala Students Union are also on the warpath for some time against the CPI(M)-led LDF government, demanding scrapping the pact which it signed with managements of private medical colleges.
Activists of YC and KSU had also waved black flags to Vijayan recently as part of their agitation. The chief minister’s jibe at the Youth Congress protest that those who showed black flag against him were not YC activists, but somebody “hired by television channels” had triggered an uproar in and outside the Assembly last week.
