CPM-RSS clash in Kerala: RSS hold protests at Delhi Kerala Bhavan

Echoing the ongoing RSS- CPI (M) clashes in Kerala, supporters of RSS on Wednesday organised a march in Delhi to protest the increased attacks on RSS workers in Kerala allegedly by the CPI (M).

Led by RSS leader Dattatreya Hosabale, the RSS hold the protest at Delhi Kerala Bhavan, condemning the violence by CPI (M). RSS leader Pramukh J Nandakumar, Writer Advaita Kala and actor Mukhesh Khanna, was also present for the protest.

The brutal attacks on RSS-BJP workers have increased ever since the CPI (M) government assumed office in Kerala last year, the organisers of the protest alleged.

Recently, a  52-year-old BJP worker named Santosh died in Kerala after he was attacked by a gang of unidentified men when he was alone at his house in Kannur. Blaming the ruling CPM for the attack, the district unit of the BJP had observed a dawn-to-dusk hartal last week.

Reports later said six CPM activists have been arrested for the murder of a BJP worker in Kerala’s northern district of Kannur. Commenting on the attack, police reportedly said the murder was retaliatory in nature after CPM activist Aril, in his 20s, was attacked earlier last week, allegedly by RSS activists. His hands and legs were broken and he is currently hospitalised.

The BJP has also demanded an explanation from Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, whose constituency of Dharmadam, is close to the site of the attack.
