The CPI(M) on Tuesday accused RSS of engaging in politics of violence to sharpen communal polarisation in Muslim-dominated pockets of Northern Kerala and described the tactic as a “standard” practice the Sangh resorts to spread its wings.
“The RSS seeks through such politics of violence and terror to sharpen communal polarisation in predominantly Muslim populated areas of northern Kerala to increase its following amongst people. These are standard RSS tactics,” the CPI(M) Politburo said in a statement.

The Politburo sought to refute RSS’ allegation that the CPI(M) had launched violence against Sangh workers, saying the charges are part of the Goebbelsian tactics the RSS-BJP combine “always” resorts to “propagate a lie as truth” by repeating it hundred times.
The truth, the Politburo said, is the “other way round” and accused the RSS of killing five Left workers and injuring 300 others in Kerala ever since Pinarayi Vijayan government was formed in the state.
“Every single judicial commission of enquiry into communal riots all over the country since independence has severely indicted the RSS and their role in perpetuating communal polarisation through violence and terror.
“…while it is clear that it is the RSS which is mounting large-scale attacks against the CPI(M) all over Kerala, it is fallaciously seeking to portray itself as the victim,” it added.
The CPI(M) also forewarned that the RSS appears determined to continue with its violence against it given the Sangh allegedly refused to hold talks with the state’s ruling party to restore peace and harmony in the areas concerned.
“The RSS bluff shall be called. The people of Kerala and the entire country are determined to defeat such diabolical politics of the BJP,” it said.
