CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Monday hit out at the RSS-BJP, saying the Left party was capable of giving a suitable answer if the saffron outfits did not stop political violence.
The CPI(M) held a march till the BJP headquarters to protest against the alleged saffron terror in Kerala and to counter the ongoing protest marches of the BJP against the alleged violence by the Left.
“We will not keep quite. We warn the BJP that if they do not stop violence then we will answer back. We will not bow down,” Yechury said. The march was led by Yechury who was joined by former party general secretary Prakash Karat and other politburo members.
Addressing party cadres in front of the BJP headquarters, Yechury alleged that while the BJP was campaigning in Delhi against the “Left violence” in Kerala, it was continuing violence against the Left cadres.
Yechury referred to yesterday’s incident in which RSS workers allegedly threw bombs at Left cadres in Kannur. Addressing the gathering, CPI(M) politburo member Brinda Karat targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah over the violence.
She alleged that Shah was trying to instigate terror against the Left cadres in Kerala, but the people of the state would not bow down in front of the RSS or the BJP.
