The Kerala Assembly on Monday passed a resolution demanding the removal of Lakshadweep administrator Praful Patel and cancelling his proposed regulations. The resolution, which chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan, introduced was passed unanimously by the 140-member Assembly.

The resolution said attempts are being made to impose a saffron agenda and corporate interests in Lakshadweep. Further, the resolution said the proposed laws could wreck their means of livelihood and the island community's culture.
