Accusing the Communist Party of India (Marxist) for the killing of its activist in Kerala’s Kannur district, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday alleged that people not following the Left ideology either gets killed or murdered.
Noting that it was the seventh political murder in the district this year, BJP spokesperson Siddharth Nath Singh told reporters that they would raise this issue and would definitely respond to the violence of the Left.
“The CPM or the Left ideology has been violent and if you don’t stand with their ideology, they would like to defer with you by silencing through 0death or murder and that’s what is exactly happening in Kerala,” Singh said.

“It is highly condemnable, but certainly the BJP in a democratic manner will raise this issue and respond to the violence of the Left,” he added.
Meanwhile, BJP leader Sambit Patra said the incident exposes the governance in Kerala, as people are being hacked to death there on everyday basis.
“A government that cannot protect lives cannot be called as a government in fact. We have seen almost everyday someone is hacked to death in Kerala. The Kerala Government has to investigate and has to punish those people, who are responsible for this,” Patra said.
Two days after a CPM worker was killed, the BJP activist was hacked to death in at a petrol pump near Pinarayi in Kannur district in Kerala.
The victim suffered severe injuries on his head and neck after he was attacked by a group of people around 11 a.m.
Earlier, in a similar manner, a 52-year-old CPM worker was hacked to death in Kannur.
Meanwhile, both CPM and BJP are now blaming each other for the death of their respective party workers.
Police have deployed personnel in large numbers as the district remained tense in the wake of the political murders.
