BJP accuses Kerala govt of political antagonism
Taking a dig at the Left-led state government in Kerala, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) accused the Communist Party of India (Marxist) of terrorising and political antagonism in the state.
The party also alleged that in not only Kerala, even in West Bengal, where the left party ruled for 32 long years, it terrorized the people in the same way and the law and order system was seen distorted during the Left regime.
Not only that, BJP also strongly condemned the attack on RSS workers by the Left cadres while the Sangh Parivar brought out processions in Kerala to mark Janmashtami. Two RSS workers were on Thursday injured in an attack, in Kannur district.
Nevertheless, in yet another incident of political rivalry, four RSS workers were attacked, triggering tension in the locality. Sujesh (30) and Santosh (28), local RSS functionaries, were attacked by a group of around 20 alleged CPI-(M) cadres with sharp-edged weapons at a construction site of a house of another RSS worker around noon at Muzukkun in Irruty, police said. They later attacked two other RSS workers, Arun (23) and Deepesh (26), with iron rods.
All the four were rushed to a hospital in nearby Thallassery and Sujesh, who is stated to have received serious injuries, had been shifted to Kozhikode Medical College Hospital. Last month, two workers belonging to CPI(M) and BJP were killed and the issue echoed in the state assembly.
