Thiruvananthapuram, Nov 22: BJP has called for a hartal in the neighbouring Kanyakumari, the constituency of Union Minister Pon Radhakrishnan, in Tamil Nadu, on Friday.
Party sources said the hartal will be observed in protest against the misbehaviour by Kerala Police on the Union Minister during his pilgrimage to Lord Ayyappa temple in Sabarimala.
Kerala BJP leaders alleged that the Minister was misbehaved by Superintendent of Police Yathish Chandra at Nilakkal on Wednesday.
In another incident, the car of the Minister's convoy was stopped and inspected by the police at Pamba in the wee hours on Thursday. (UNI)
