KANNUR: Congress men badly thrashed the Youth Congress men who were striking in front of the Cooperative bank which the Congress is governing. Cutting across Groups, the Congress men and Youth Congress men entered into a serious brawl.
The list regarding last grade appointment in the Bank was issued yesterday. But, Youth Congress leaders, who expected recruitments, did not figure in the list. It was after finding this out that the Youth Congress men held a dharna in front of the bank. As the dharna was in progress under the Youth Congress Mandalam president, a bunch of Congress activists rushed to the spot and drove away the protestors which included women. They also smashed chairs and other furniture.
