The post-election violence unleashed by CPM men in Kannur District still continues in all cruelty and brutality. In Muzhakkunnu Panchayath, the victim is a 7 years old kid, student of Standard II. A CPM man who was released on bail the other day from the jail, threatened Rahul, a young BJP worker on phone, that he had got bail and he would kill him (Rahul). The CPM man had been arrested after some clashes with BJP-RSS men. The next day, May 30, the team of CPM goons came to Rahul’s house; but Rahul was not there. Karthik, Rahul’s son, was playing in front of the house. Since Rahul was not at home, the culprits caught hold of the child and pressed him against a wall and hacked his hand. The child is in the hospital now.
Why did they do this to this innocent child? The answer is simple: Muzhukkunnu is a CPM party village where other organisations do not have the right to propagate or work. It is in Muzhukkunnu hills that the alleged killers of TP Chandrasekharan were hiding after the murder and were arrested thereafter. Despite this undisputed CPM influence in the Panchayath, BJP won two seats in the elections held in November 2015. And, BJP stood second in several other seats. The seat contested by Remya, the wife of Rahul, was one among them! In other words, vampires are still vampires, especially after their leader Pinarayi Vijayan took over as the CM.
Senior BJP leader Shri O Rajagopal MLA and BJP state president Shri Kummanam Rajasekharan visited Karthik at the hospital. Shri O Rajagopal MLA urged the general public to react to this evil act of Communist Party. “Even a seven year old child is insecure in the state under the new Leftist Government. Chief Minister Vijayan had claimed that it would be people’s government. Now it has been proved that his words are in vain,” Shri Rajagopal said after visiting Karthik at the hospital. If Vijayan is a man of his word, he should condemn the attack and take stringent action against the culprits, he added.
After visiting the boy at the hospital, BJP state president Kummanam Rajasekharan said that the attack against Karthik bears testimony to the vicious plot of CPM to devastating even the young generation. He also alleged that the major assailant of this incident was an accused in a similar case of attacking another BJP worker.
While speaking to Organiser, BJP Kannur District president P Sathyaprakash said, “Even children cannot live fearlessly in Kannur District. CPM goons are unleashing brutal violence on RSS-BJP workers and even kids and denying the fundamental rights of the people. The CPM should lay down weapons”. Now a situation has emerged that the human life has no value in the home place of the Chief Minister (Kannur), he added. He urged all citizens who believe in democracy to array against the CPM’s goonda raj in Kannur.
Balagokulam condemned the attack against Karthik and asked CPM to stop attacking children in the name of political differences. Attacking innocent children and women physically and issuing death threats against them are barbaric. It is not at all acceptable in a civilised society, Balagokulam state secretary NV Prejith Master said.
Meanwhile, one leg of a BJP worker Vingottu Mani of Kuttayadi Nittoor, Kozhikkode district, has been amputated in the hospital. His leg was badly damaged in CPM’s bombing on May 20, post counting. Two workers, Premraj and Sreejith, who were injured in the same attack, are still in the hospital. The killer brigade did not permit the local people to take the injured to the hospital. At last police arrived and hospitalised them.
