Ms. Rema, who reached the capital last night, arrived before the secretariat at the head of a march by RMP activists and fellow travellers, after offering floral tributes at the Martyrs’ Column. There was no formal inauguration of the fast.

In his speech marking the beginning of the fast, RMP leader N. Venu accused the CPI(M) of having pulled all stops to shield Chandrasekharan’s killers and cover up the party’s ‘links’ with the brutal killing.

Satheesan, M.V. Shreyams Kumar, T. N. Prathapan, C.P. Mohammed, P.C. Vishnunath, A.P. Abdullakkutty, Hiby Eden, and Anwar Sadath among others.
