Violent CPM men kill BJP worker in CM constituency, attack Police Station
Violent CPM men killed a BJP worker, Santoshkumar (52), on January 19. Armed attackers barged into Santosh’s house at Andalloor under Dharmadam Panchayath in Dharmadam Assembly Constituency represented by Kerala Chief Minister and CPM veteran Pinarayi Vijayan, and hacked him to death. The attack took place at 11.30 at night. Santosh had contested the last year’s Panchayat election as a BJP candidate. Dharmadam is in Kannur district. BJP workers observed bandh all over Kannur district to protest against the cold blooded murder.
When the CPM supremo Pinarayi Vijayan is at the helm as Chief Minister holding the Home Ministry also, his cadres believe that they reserve the right to attack the police stations and liberate their comrades, if they are in the custody of the ‘proletarian’ police. They proved it once again in Ponkunnam, Kottaym district, on January 18.
Three CPM men had been arrested and kept in the police station for attacking a private school and smashing the windows and furniture. It is reported that they marched to the school and attacked. The reason is simple: The management permitted RSS to conduct its primary training camp (Prathanik Shiksha Varg), in the school premises, during X-Mas holidays !
Now, the CPM men attacked the station and broke the windows, CCTV cameras and glasses of the police jeep in an effort to free their men by force. The incident vindicates the allegations being raised by the BJP and RSS leaders that when the party is in power CPM comes down to the standard of street goons, for, they are not afraid of any legal action from the side of their “own” government.
Extremely agitated over the deteriorating law and order situation in the state, Kerala state BJP president Kummanam Rajasekharan urged the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to deploy central forces in Kannur. He said it in a statement issued after the brutal killing of Santoshkumar in Kannur.
Talking to mediapersons after he visited Ponkunnam police station in Kottayam district which was attacked by CPM men to liberate their men arrested for attacking a school, he said the reason for the attack was for management’s permission to RSS to conduct its Prathamik Shikashan Shibir there. He said, while state school youth festival, Asia’s largest youth festival, is going on in Kannur CPM celebrates the killings of BJP and RSS men.
CPM men have killed four BJP men before the completion of two months since the peace meeting was chaired by the CM and CPM leader Pinarayi Vijayan. Several others are seriously injured. Police shuts their eyes when CPM men resort to violence and killings. In Dharmmadam, a Panchayat within the assembly constituency represented by the CM, police threatened the women and children during day time; consequently several people fled the place.
Kummanam wondered what more is required to say that Kerala’s law and order situation is worse. He wonders why the intellectuals and prominent citizens ignore these brutal attacks and keep quiet; whereas they shout about the missing tolerance in the country.
