LDF protests Centres decision to reduce rice quota

Thiruvananthapuram: Thousands of workers from the ruling CPI(M)-led LDF Saturday took out a march to Raj Bhavan here and staged a dharna protesting the Centre's decision to reduce the rice quota alloted to Kerala.

The protest was inaugurated by CPI(M) state secretary, Kodiyeri Balakrishnan.

CPI Secretary Kanam Rajendran, Janata Dal (S) Secretary George Thomas, Congress (S) state chief and state Ports Minister Kadanapally Ramachandran, were among those who participated.

LDF has been organising a series of protests since the past few days against the Union government's decision to bring down the state's rice quota.

"Even as the left front is trying to intensify its agitation demanding restoration of the rice quota of the state, the Centre was trying to destroy the statutory rationing system," the LDF leaders alleged.

LDF has already organised protest jathas in various assembly constituencies.
