      The antinational communist government of Kerala should be dismissed immediately. The Commies had no place in today's world.

        The amount of bloodshed the CPIM cadre has brought upon the country is unparalleled. It's the only murderous partly in the country. It's time BJP took them on and defanged them. And the anti nationals of JNU have not spoken a word against all these murders.

                  "An eye for an eye only ends up making the w world blind" - Mahatma hi.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;People, the all-powerful eny in a democratic country "choose" to stay silent to such kind of heinous crime ."People of Kannur" together with the political parties are "responsible" for the death of those two persons. Kannur citizenry is as usual silent/inactive about these gruesome murders happening around them (most probably because of fear or helplessness). But People of Kannur has to speak up against these cruel murders happening around them. How can we call our country a democratic one when its citizenry cannot freely speak out against evils existing in the society? People must say to these political parties that, they have had enough of killings, blood and cries. They must decisively say that no party can hamper the peace in the society. No offence to the people of Kannur. But I have to say to Kannur citizenry please don't be silent about these crimes because "Silence in the face of such kind of heinous act is a Crime". lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;To the Government of Kerala: You have to act with iron hand against all the parties to the crime without discriminating on the colour of the flag. Government must take precedence of the fate of the previous governments in and around India about their silence against the crimes committed against the society and humanity. No matter what colour your flag bears it will be wiped out of existence by the people of India if you choose to turn a blind eye. The most important thing to the people of this country is not development but safety and security of themselves and their family.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;To the Political Parties: You are playing with fire (citizens). One day people will decide your fate and no power in the world will help you. It will burn you into ashes. Take precedence from "previously biggest national party".

                    A goonda is calling another goonda, for tat going on,, not correct for the healthy society. Kerala - an educated community should not fall to this type of 3rd degree politics of killing each other. Shame.

                        CPM premeditated and killed their own member before he exiting to BJP. Mohan an active member of CPM like many distancing from Marxists party was recently inclined towards able administration of BJP lead by PM Mod and expressed his desires to close circles. Something CPM never wanted in distant dream happening CM's home town few yards away from Vijayan's home.lt;br/gt;CPM used him as a scapegoat to put the blame on BJP by killing there own member who was any way at the exit door of CPM.lt;br/gt;By doing so the horrific ministry lead by blood stained Vijayan for time being can shift the public attentions from the ongoing public outcry against mive multi-layered scandals currently simmering. Pinerai Vijayan himself a leader and expert of killer operations of political opponents from college days will manoeuvre things using corrupt police officials the only known skill CM porly known possessing.

                                    Saffronised party is solely responsible for this and instead choose to blame Kerala government in this regard, while they claim themselves as the champions of Hindus/their cause, they are mercilessly murdering Party workers of CPI(M) who were also Hindus which exhibits their double standard policy.

                                        BJP is the real culprit. On getting to power in the centre, BJP is unleashing acts of terrorism against other parties. The leaders of BJP in Kerala are all acting like notorious goondas. They think that people of Kerala are their enemies since BJP is not voted to power here. CPM has now resorted to for tat. Remember that BJP goondas had killed a CPM worker on Tuesday. This may be a retaliatory act. But BJP has initiated such cruel actgs. Better name is BGP for them , Bharath Goonda Party.

                                          Kerala people love violence. The CM didn't recently turn violent. Him and his party have always been involved in brutal political murders and corruption. These communists aren't allowed to spend money since they believe in distributing wealth for the upliftment of the poor and making all equal.This CM has a son who's studying in England and obviously that doesn't come free. People of Kerala still vote for these gundas and rogues. Communists believe in snatching money from hard working people and giving it to lazy ones. They believe in killing and violence. Nothing can be done about it as long as their violent supporters believe in the same.

                                            The incident looks very much like a revenge killing for a CPM worker supposedly carried out by the RSS group. High time Sangh Parivar realise Kerala is no cow belt and their writ not run there unimpeded.
