Several Members of Parliament (MPs) from Kerala who have been trying to visit Lakshadweep have been once again prevented from taking the trip.
MPs belonging to the ruling Left in Kerala as well as the opposition Congress have been rejected entry on strange grounds.
The Left MPs were asked to produce good conduct declarations from a sponsor while the Congress MPs were told that their visit would cause unrest in the peaceful islands.
The Lakshadweep Administration has asked seven MPs of Left parties to produce good conduct declarations from a sponsor signed before a notary or magistrate.
This perplexing condition to visit the islands, marred by controversy since the appointment of its new Administrator and his new reforms, have left the MPs dismayed.
