COMMUNIST VIOLENCE IN KERALA AFTER ASSUMPTION OF POWER BY LDF GOVERNMENT IN KERALA.
Press Briefing by Sri Nandakumar on Resolutions Passed by RSS ABKM.
Kerala is going through a turbulent phase of violence based on intolerance by the CPM against groups that they perceive to be opposed to them.
As far as CPM is concerned, Kerala is their sole area of influence in the whole country. During the 60’s, they were dreaming of taking over the nation. Their famous slogan was “After Nehru, EMS !” Over the last 6 decades, CPM has lost each of their bastions including Bengal due to their anti-people stand, arrogance of their leaders, intolerance and hate politics that they followed. Inspite of this, they are continue to tread the same path of intolerance in Kerala.
It was in 1940’s that the Rashtreeya Swayamsevak Sangh started its work in Kerala. Initially communist approach towards Sangh was in a contemptuous manner. Slogan raised by them was that Malayale mind will not accept Sangh ideology. But when they found that Sangh ideology started making inroads in communist strong holds they started becoming intolerant towards Sangh also.
Cadres from the communist party who were disillusioned with communism started jointing RSS. Communist party which claimed that they stand for working class, were not able to prevent the working class from joining RSS. As usual, they started using force to prevent the growing influence of RSS.
The first victim was SriVadikkal Ramakrishnan, a tailor by profession, the Mukhya Shikshak of Thalassery Shakha of RSS, who was brutally murdered in broad day light on 28.04.1969 while he was working from his small tailoring shop. The accused No.1 in that case was none other than the present Chief Minister of Kerala, Sri. Pinarayi Vijayan, and the accused No.2 was Raju Master who is the father-in law of Sri.Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, the present State Secretary of CPI(M). But they were able to get an acquittal from the court on the reason of benefit of doubt because of the poor investigation of the case conducted by the local police.
- But the murder of SriRamakrishnan couldn’t stop Sangh ideology from spreading to every nook and corner of Kerala. Swayamsevaks were able to carry the message of Sangh even in the stronghold of communist party which they claim as their “Party Village” (Party Gramam) where they will not allow others to work. Swayamsevaks bravely resisted the terrorist style of approach of the CPI(M).
- In the 80’s, a Taluka Karyavah by name Mohan was murdered by CPI(M) cadres. His daughter, Nivedita who was then 2 years old is now married to a RSS karyakarta. Recently, Nivedita’s home was ransacked and demolished by CPI(M) workers. They also threatened her by putting a knife on her neck and stating that she and her husband will face the same fate of her father. This happened in the presence of police.
- The present scenario is too grave after the assumption of office by the present L.D.F government led by none other than Sri. Pinarayi Vijayan who was the ‘first accused’ in the first murder case mentioned above.
Sri. C.K.Ramachandran, who was a B.M.S functionary, an auto driver of Payyannur in Kannur was killed inside his house on 11.07.2016 in the presence of his wife and children. On 03.09.2016 Sri. Vineesh, a swayamsevak of Thillankery Panchayath in Kannur was killed on his way to his house after his work. Lastly Sri. Remith Uthaman of Pinarayi, which is the constituency of the present Chief Minister was brutally murdered on 12.10.2016 in the broad day light while he was on his way to buy medicine for his pregnant sister. It is to be noted that Remith’s father Sri.Uthaman of Chavassery, a Swayamsevak and a bus driver was also killed by CPI(M) from inside the bus on 22.02.2002. Now the family of Late. Sri Uthaman has no male member in the family. This is a classic example of the brutality of the CPI (M) in Kannur District. Instances like this are innumerable.
- The CPM goons are showing their intolerance not only towards the BJP RSS, but also against other political parties. There are several of instances of CPM unleashing violence against almost all non-CPM parties. Several incidents of bomb attacks on persons, properties and vehicles of RSS/ BJP workers are reported.
Even Women, children & pet animals are not spared. Crops, vehicles, houses, school buildings are also attacked and demolished.
Commenting on the prevailing situation in Kerala, the Inspector General of Police expressed anguish and helplessness of the police machinery to tackle the extremism of the CPI(M) cadres.
The RSS ABKM condemned the continuing violence of CPI(M) against RSS and other opponents. It called upon the government of Kerala as well as the Union Government to take appropriate action urgently against the perpetrators of violence and necessary measures to ensure rule of law in Kerala. The ABKM also appealed to the people at large including media to create public opinion against the violent tactics of CPI(M) by raising their voice in various fora.
