Kerala CPM to Host Asian Leaders Meeting in September

CPI (M) state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan disagrees with Governor's tweet 'Summoning' Chief Minister

Instead, he has come to visit the families of RSS workers which itself shows that he can not get past political partisanship, he added.

He also met the family of another RSS worker Jayaprakash, who was seriously injured in an attack allegedly by the CPI (M). The defence minister's visit focused lambasting the Kerala government for ongoing political violence more than settling political disputes. "Hence, as a representative of the Union government, he should have shown the courtesy of visiting those who were killed by the RSS", said the CPM state secretary.

State BJP leaders, including president Kummanam Rajasekharan, accompanied the Union Finance minister. Since the BJP and the RSS were aware of the fact that communal violence does not take place under the LDF regime, they have been looking at increasing instances of political violence, said Balakrishnan. Speaking with reporters here, the senior BJP leader dismissed the contention that the BJP-RSS combine was "equally responsible" for the clashes and said when it came to ending political violence, the buck stopped with the ruling party and the state government.

"Kerala has the lowest crime rate in the nation compared to BJP-ruled states like Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat". This led to several bandhs across Kerala and a long phase of political violence. Jaitley also directed the party cadres to provide sufficient help and rehabilitation to the slain activists Rajesh and Vishnu.

"Jaitley, who is a central minister, should also visit the houses of CPM workers who have been killed in attacks", he added. I assure our karyakartas and victims that the party will stand strongly behind them.


BJP MPs had visited the Union home minister Rajnath Singh seeking the Centre's intervention. This kind of violence will neither suppress ideology in Kerala nor it will be able to scare our workers.

On 12 May 2017, RSS worker Biju was murdered by alleged CPM activists in Payyanur, prompting the BJP to demand the imposition of the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act in Kannur district.

Eight suspects have been detained in the murder of the RSS worker and taken into custody in connection with the case.

While the political rhetoric raised by CPI (M) and the RSS-BJP constantly seeks to pin the blame on one side over the other, the pattern of deaths is relatively equally distributed across both.
