Against the backdrop of the violence at Vizhinjam, a peace mission was formed under the aegis of the Kerala Gandhi Smarak Nidhi here on Thursday.
Representatives of around 16 outfits who met at the Gandhi Smarak Nidhi raised concern over the “volatile situation” at Vizhinajm and other parts of the State.
