Political murders in Kerala worsethan terrorist act, says Jaitley

Political murders in Kerala worsethan terrorist act, says Jaitley

The family members of slain CPM workers staged the dharna demanding that the union minister visit their homes too and listen to their woes. CPI (M) secretary, Kodiyeri, after the meeting, said he will spread the message to his party workers across the state to adopt peace and stab violence.

Jaitley said that instead, it would only increase the determination of the RSS workers to work harder against those indulging in violence.

During his visit, Jaitley was accompanied by Kerala BJP President Kummanam Rajasekharan and some state BJP leaders.

Politics and violence bear an inextricable link in Kerala, particularly when it comes to the struggle being waged between the CPI (M) and the RSS and the BJP. Instead, he has come to visit the families of RSS workers which itself shows that he can not get past political partisanship, he added.

Rajesh pointed out that Jaitley should find time to visit the bereaved families of the soldiers who killed in wars.

"We are deeply pained by his death", he said. "The workers of Kerala are not alone, the whole nation is with you", he told the grieving family, while blaming the Left-ruled state government of perpetrating violence in Kerala. Ahead of the media interaction, Jaitley also attended a meeting held to commemorate Rajesh and met victims of alleged CPM violence. There was a "saga" of violence in the state in the last few months, he said, adding BJP offices and party workers were being attacked. Kerala Governor P Sathasivam had on July 30 summoned the chief minister and state police chief Loknath Behra to ascertain the action taken in the backdrop of the murder of Rajesh and other violent incidents.

It said BJP-RSS began their attacks the very day assembly election results in Kerala were announced in May 2016.

Although not declared a political murder, police arrested 16 RSS workers in connection with the killing of a teenager called Ananthu Ashokan at Cherthala.
