New Delhi: The Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Friday strongly condemned the killing of a party leader in Kerala’s Pathanamthitta district by an RSS-BJP gang. The party’s Polit Bureau said the murder Comrade P. B. Sandeep Kumar, Secretary of the Peringara local committee of the Party in Thiruvalla is a continuation of the politics of murder targeting the CPI (M) practiced by the RSS-BJP in Kerala. According to reports, Comrade Sandeep, aged 36, a popular leader and a former member of the panchayat, was waylaid and stabbed with knives multiple times by the RSS-BJP gang. One of the key accused, who has been arrested, is the president of the BJP’s Yuva Morcha in Peringara and an RSS worker.
The Polit Bureau said the aim of the RSS-BJP is to disrupt the peaceful atmosphere prevalent in the state and to try and check the growth of the CPI(M) by resorting to violence where CPI(M) is leading the Left Front government in the state. The Polit Bureau warned the RSS-BJP’s these machinations will not be allowed to succeed in the state.
