PATHANAMTHITTA: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) State secretary A.G. Unnikrishnan has alleged that the `prohibitory orders' clamped by the district administration in the late night of Wednesday has caused much inconvenience and hardships to the general public in Pathanamthitta municipal limits. Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, Mr. Unnikrishnan said the delayed decision by the police was a testimony to the `incompetence' of the law and order machinery under the Left Democratic Front Government.

He said the closure of the municipal market caused difficulties to the local people.

BJP district leaders Ajith Pullad and Elanthoor Haridas were also present.
