Kollam | Kerala based People’s Democratic Party (PDP), jailed in connection with Bengaluru blast case, has called for a statewide dawn to dusk hartal on Wednesday to protest the denial of bail to its leader Abdul Nasser Madhani by a Bengaluru court for attending the wedding of his son.
   Madani had submitted the bail plea in order to attend the wedding of his son Umar Mukhthar to be held at Thalassery on August 9.
   Siraj said that Madani had also sought bail to visit his ailing mother and also to attend the wedding of his son.
  However, the court allowed bail from August 1 to August 7 to visit his mother and he would have to return without attending the wedding of his son.
  PDP State Working Committee Chairman Poonthura Siraj said the party called for hartal to protest against this.
