Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 10 (IANS) Congress’ Kerala unit chief V.M. Sudheeran on Saturday night condemned the Madhya Pradesh Police from preventing Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan from attending a function in Bhopal earlier in the day.

According to the Communist Party of India-Marxist party organ Deshabhimani, Vijayan had reached Bhopal to attend a function organised by Kerala-based organisations but he could not reach the venue following protest by activists of the RSS and Bajrang Dal.

Meanwhile, it added that Vijayan’s counterpart Shivraj Singh Chouhan rang up Vijayan and expressed regret over the incident, while the police chief personally came and met Vijayan and apologised for what happened.
