With the row over Kochi IPL team assuming political dimensions, Congress and BJP in Kerala on Wednesday took to streets, burning effigies of IPL commissioner Lalit K Modi and Union Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor.

The Youth Congress workers staged a protest in front of the Secretariat accusing Modi of conspiring to sabotage the Kerala IPL team.

Close on the heels, a group of activists of Yuva Moracha -- BJP's youth wing, turned up on the scene and burnt an effigy of Tharoor and raised slogans demanding his resignation from the Union Council of Ministers.

Tharoor represents Thiruvananthapuaram in the Lok Sabha.
