All-party team seeks ban on NDF

9/3/2006 6:40:25 AM www.newindpress.com

MALAPPURAM: An all-party delegation from Manjeri has complained to the Chief Minister about the activities of the NDF outfit in the area.

The group, consisting of workers from the CPM, the Congress and the Muslim League, who also met Malappuram SP Tarun Kumar, said that the NDF was causing law and order problems in the area.

In the complaint the delegation urged a ban on the NDF and sought a comprehensive probe into the NDF activities by Crime Branch or CBI. When contacted, SP told to this website's newspaper that he had received a copy of the complaint given by the all-party committee members the other day.

The anti-NDF feeling in the area came about after a tussle between the NDF and the other parties at Pulpatta panchayat in Manjeri following the dismantling of an alleged sex racket in the area. The locals in the area allege that the estate, considered to be the hub of training activities of the NDF, is the centre of all the problems.

On Friday, an all-party meeting, attended by the local leaders of the Congress, the League and the CPM, was held in Manjeri with the aim of mobilising people’s support against the NDF.

Their main contention was that the estate had become a safe haven for unscrupulous elements protected by the NDF.

They vowed that they are committed to fight the kind of terrorism undertaken by a ‘section in society’ with an apparent reference to the NDF. They said that they decided to come out in the open following law and order problems created in the Pulpatta panchayat.

The committee has decided to undertake campaigns so as to keep the younger generation from falling prey to the activities of the NDF.
