The BJP in Kerala observed a black day on Tuesday and reiterated its demand for the resignation of Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. BJP leaders, supporters and others trended the hashtag #ResignKeralaCM on Twitter.
The state leaders of the BJP and Congress have been demanding the Chief Minister's resignation ever since the gold smuggling case surfaced. Swapna Suresh, one of the main accused in the smuggling case, was a contract staff at state Information Technology department. She was also close to IAS officer M Sivasankar, who was the CM's secretary and state's IT secretary.
