Kerala: In Kerala’s Kannur district, a BJP party worker got murdered two days after the murder of CPM leader. The victim was identified as Remith. He was killed in front of a petrol pump in Pinarayi village around 10 am, a police official said.
According to sources, Remith’s father was also murdered some years ago.
This incident comes in the wake of the killing of 52-year-old CPI-M grassroot leader K Mohanan, who was hacked to death by suspected RSS activists on Monday.
Strangely both of these murders took place in the assembly constituency of Dharmadom represented by Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.
As an effect the BJP has called for a 12-hour bandh (strike) in the state.The announcement for the strike was made by state Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Kummanem Rajashekeran.
Denying allegation, CPM leader Sitaram Yechury hit back saying, “This atmosphere of violence is being created by the BJP and RSS in Kannur district. The violence has been started by the RSS and to blame the CPI(M) is total fabrication.”
On Monday, 52-year-old CPM worker Mohanan K was attacked at his toddy shop in a busy market and hacked to death by four-five men. The CPM alleges that BJP workers were involved in the incident.
Two scheduled caste BJP workers were killed in Kannur district of Kerala last week.
Since the Left government came to power in May, Kannur has witnessed a string of attacks on political workers.
