KOLLAM: Demonstrations against the Left Democratic Front (LDF) government will be organised in all the grama panchayats, the two municipal areas and in the corporation area here on October 16.

Sooranad Rajasekharan, UDF district chairman, said the demonstrations would expose the LDF ploy in blaming the Centre for the overall failure of the State government.

He said the October-17 dharna in front of the Parliament House by Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan and his Cabinet colleagues was part of this strategy. The LDF was spreading the canard that the Centre was ignoring Kerala.

The truth was that the State government was totally ignoring the Central schemes. The State had failed in utilising the Central allocations for the various schemes, he said.
