Action will be taken against the Students Federation of India(SFI) activists who vandalised Rahul Gandhi MP’s office, said the organisations’ National President VP Sanu. He told the media in Thiruvananthapuram on June 25, Saturday, that the SFI had not decided on this kind of march(to the MPs’ office) and action will be taken after examining the visuals and after following the due procedure of the organisation. The SFI is the student wing of the CPI(M).

“This (the Supreme Court order buffer zones) is not an issue which should be turned against an MP. But there is nothing wrong with the thought that Rahul Gandhi, as the leader of the biggest opposition party in the country, should have made a strong response to the issue. Wayanad has the highest number of buffer zones in the country. But we don’t approve of the march turning into this way,” Sanu added.

SFI state president K Anusree said that the march was not done either with the knowledge or approval of the state committee of the SFI. “SFI made it clear yesterday that it will examine what happened and action will be taken accordingly,” she said while meeting the media along with Sanu.
