Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) activist TJ Jijesh’s house was attacked allegedly by CPI(M) workers on Friday. Three two-wheelers that were parked in front of the house reportedly caught fire during the attack. The BJP has alleged that the Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI-M) was behind the attack. An investigation is underway.
Earlier in November, four Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) workers were attacked in Kerala’s Kannur district.
Meanwhile, a CPI-M worker was injured on November 19 after a crude bomb was hurled at a rally. The incident had happened a day after Mayor VK Prasant was attacked by the BJP workers at the city corporation council.
CPI-M District Secretary Anavoor Nagappan alleged that the BJP workers had unleashed violence on the workers of his party during a procession.
In October, an RSS activist was injured, while bombs were hurled at a BJP party office. The BJP had on October 3 launched its Jana Raksha Yatra from Kannur to highlight ‘Lefts atrocities’ in the state.
