PFI flays government, stages protest
Members of the Popular Front of India (PFI) organised protest condemning government’s decision which prevented PFI from organising Freedom Parade in Mysore on Sunday.
PFI had plans to organise Freedom Parades in Mysore, Tanjore of Tamilnadu, Idukki and Kannur in Kerala. However, only Karnataka government denied permission to organise programme at Mysore, Saifulla said.
“PFI had sought permission from the Police Commissioner of Mysore for the programme. However, it was denied on security grounds. Similarly, permission was not granted even when PFI requested the authority to change the venue to Tumkur or Hassan,” he added.
A memorandum submitted to the DGP Ajay Kumar Singh was also rejected by him, Saifulla said and charged that the government’s action was undemocratic.
PFI State Secretary Iliyas Mohammed Thumbe, members Mohammed Ashraf, Bakrabail Suresh Bhat and Mehfooz were present.
