Administration says visit is an attempt to disturb peace

Lakshadweep denies entry to Congress MPs

Hibi Eden and TN Prathapan

The Lakshadweep Administration has rejected the application of Congress lawmakers Hibi Eden and TN Prathapan for an entry permit to Lakshadweep, stating that their visit “for political activities” will “disturb” the peaceful atmosphere. 

The administration also said the visit can cause a possible “surge in Covid-19 cases”. The administration further added that the purpose of the visit of the MPs—“to understand problems faced by islanders due to new policies of administration”—appears to be a “political action”.

‘Will approach Parliament’

Hitting out at the Lakshadweep administration, Prathapan said then they will approach the state high court and raise the Lakshadweep issue in Parliament if they entry is blocked.
