Thiruvananthapuram: Normal life across Kerala was paralysed on Monday, April 9 following a shutdown in the state called by 30 Dalit organisations to protest against the dilution of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
A similar shutdown took place in the state on April 2 as part of the nationwide 24-hour protest called by trade unions.
The state-owned Road Transport Corporation, private bus operators and traders body had earlier announced that they would function normally. But in many places, the protesters blocked roads to prevent vehicles from plying.
In Kochi, the leader of Monday’s protest Geetanandan and his supporters was taken into custody.
“The report that we have got from across the state is that by and large the protest appears to have become a success… There is no reason for taking us into custody,” Geetanandan told the media.
Shops especially in Kannur district, were asked to down their shutters.
