People throng Thiruvananthapuram for Kerala Yatra, human chain

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: With the sun shining bright after a rain break, a wave of humanity swept the city on Saturday. Right from the morning the city saw volunteers of Samastha Kerala Sunni Students Federation (SKSSF) pouring in for the convention marking the culmination of Kerala Yatra conducted by All India Sunni Jamiatul Ulema general secretary Kanthapuram A P Aboobackar Musalyar.

Though the convention was to be held in the evening, the people seated themselves as early as possible, in the rain-drenched gallery of Chandrasekharan Nair stadium, the main venue of the convention. SSF volunteers wearing green tinted, sleeveless coats were placed at important junctions with sign boards directing the vehicles that carried the activists to the main venue. Those who had got down at Thampanoor railway station waited in the narrow green patch close to the entrance, offering their namaz at noon.

By 3pm, long, steady rows of white-capped volunteers began to appear from the East fort junction and the traffic came to a halt. Over 50,000 members of Snehasangham had meanwhile converged at the stadium. The city police had made elaborate traffic regulations which eased the traffic jam and ensured vehicular movement, though at a slow pace.

The march moved on peacefully and concluded at the Chandrasekharan Nair stadium by 5pm. A heavy posse of police were deployed at major points in the city throughout the day.

Meanwhile at Shanghumugham, a human chain was being forged in the evening. Scores of people locked their hands together to form the human chain proclaiming solidarity with the fishermen and upholding their rights. The chain, which was organized by kerala fisheries co-ordination committee stretched along for about one km, from Shanghumugham to Valiyathoppu.
