RSS sahsarkaryavah (joint general secretary) Krishna Gopal on Saturday accused the Kerala government of not allowing organisations other than the CPI(M) to function in many parts of the state.

“The politics of violence practiced by using numerical strength and political power has crossed all limits,” he said at a seminar titled “Left-wing terrorism in Kerala: Growing violence and intolerance”. Gopal alleged that the police have been “shackled and in many cases pressurised to function as an arm of the ruling party”.

He said that CPI(M) cadres were involved in all incidents of violence. “Even the cadres of the ruling party’s allies are also targeted,’’ he said. “Those who part ways with the CPI(M) have to face murderous attacks from the party.’’ He alleged that CPI(M) targets women, children and the members of backward communities.

    It is great that the murderous and criminal politics of the CPM is now getting attention outside Kerala. Innocent people are under suffocation and not able to exercise their democratic rights in the State, especially in norther region, where self styled Communist 'Gramams' (villages) have been set up and the rule of law is communism there, with no other activities are allowed and if anyone dare to do it, will meet with chopped hand or head itself. This has been going on since over decades there and none bothered to control and override it as the govt is formed turn by turn by both Congress headed UDF and Marxist led LDF. Hundreds of people have been murdered in broad day light and people remain indoors with fear. Non CPM believers or supporters are banned from their houses during voting days. The leader of that moment is now heading the CPM govt in Kerala, with tens of criminal cases against him. Central govt needs to get into action to give confidence to the people.
