THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The man who tried to commit suicide at the protest venue of the BJP near the secretariat is an ayyappa devotee, said BJP leader M T Ramesh. He took the extreme step in protest against the attitude of the government on the Sabarimala issue and against government’s irresponsible approach towards the BJP, alleged Ramesh. The government has not been able to provide necessary security to the BJP leaders and the suicide attempt is an example for it, he said. Nair, a native of Muttada, tried to commit suicide Thursday morning at 2 am. Eye witnesses said that after dousing petrol in his body, he set himself ablaze and then barged into the protest venue. Police and BJP activists jointly doused the fire and rushed the seriously injured to the medical college hospital. A staunch Ayyappa devotee took the extreme step against government’s attitude. The party’s second phase of strike started on December 3rd against women entry in Sabarimala.
