Thiruvananthapuram: The CPM and BJP leaders will jointly meet those injured in the recent political violence in the district as part of restoring  peace in the region. This was decided at a meeting of the rival party leaders convened by district collector Mir Muhammed Ali at his chamber on Wednesday. As many as 11 people, seven from  the BJP and four from the CPM, were injured, four of them seriously in the clashes  at Mattannur and Panur last week. The leaders will meet them at their homes as soon as they are discharged from the hospitals.

The meeting was attended by CPM district secretary P. Jayarajan, BJP district president P. Sathyaprakash, state cell coordinator K. Ranjith and RSS leaders Valsan Thillankery and P. Sasidharan, along with district police chief G. Siva Vikram. The collector said that of the 482 political violence cases reported in the district this year, 50 per cent  had started with trivial issues like posters and flagstaff. More stringent action would be taken against those involved in such provocative acts, said the police chief. The police would also monitor social media, he said.
