New Delhi : The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) ideologue, Rakesh Sinha, on Sunday attacked Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan over the alleged murder of a right-wing group worker, calling him a product of violence.
“The killing of Anand and other RSS workers shows that Pinarayi Vijayan is himself a product of violence and thinks this is the only way to strengthen the communist leadership in the state. Kerala Government is not interested to mend their ways,” Sinha told ANI.
The RSS ideologue also demanded a National Investigation Agency (NIA) probe into the matter. “Home minister should ask NIA to probe for murders of RSS workers occurring in Kerala,” he said.
An RSS worker, identified as Anand, was found dead in Kerala’s Thrissur on Sunday.
The deceased was an accused in the murder case of a Communist Party of India (CPI-M) activist four years ago.
‘Pinarayi must explain’
New Delhi: BJP president Amit Shah on Sunday sought an explanation from Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on steps taken by the state government to maintain law and order in the state.
Hours after the murder of RSS worker K Anand surfaced, Amit Shah took to his Twitter handle to condemn the death and question the CM about the state’s security,” CM Pinarayi must explain what his govt is doing to curb criminal elements in his rank.” Amit Shah’s tweet further reads, “I condemn the brutal killing of a young RSS Swayamsevak K Anand in Guruvayur, Kerala. The continuous violence by CPM workers & the protection to such political killings is now before the nation.”
BJP had recently organised a rally ‘JanRaksha Yatra’ in Trivandrum to protest against alleged political killings in the state. Amit Shah who was also a part of the rally had hit out at the LDF government and questioned whether Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has come in power to kill BJP and RSS workers.
