RSS, BJP leaders Visited Vandalised Houses of Sangh Karyakarthas In Kerala


A delegation of State-level leaders of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) visited the houses of Sangh karyakarthas which were vandalised in tension-torn areas in Pinarayi and Vengad panchayats in Kannur on Friday (14-Oct-2016).

The team of leaders, including, RSS Kerala Prant Pracharak P.N. Harikrishna Kumar, Prant Karyawah P. Gopalankutty, BJP leader M Ganeshan, P.K. Krishnadas visited 16 houses that were vandalised following murder of Communist Party of India (Marxist) worker K. Mohanan on October 10.

These houses situated in CPM strongholds were completely damaged. The attacks reportedly took place after the funeral of slain CPM leader Mohanan. The victims said the attackers came in groups of 20 to 30 armed with swords and other weapons.


Still trembling in fear, the victims had shocking stories to narrate.

“I sensed something wrong, when some persons wearing masks came inquiring for my husband and not finding him started showering abuse. Suddenly, they started destroying window panes while entering into house. In fear I left the home and ran on to the road. When I returned by evening, everything was damaged. After some time, they returned once again in even more numbers and yet again damaged the house and threatened to kill my husband,’’ said Radhika, wife of Shaji, a key witness in a murder case in which CPM workers are accused.


Krishnadas and Gopalankutty master told reporters that the CPI (M) “criminals” unleashed brutal attacks on houses belonging to Sangh workers and sympathisers. They also alleged that 17 women, including a pregnant woman, was manhandled.

The victims also complained that cash and gold ornaments were looted during the attack by alleged CPI (M) workers. Sangh leaders P. Sathyaprakash, Valsan Thillankery, and P.P. Suresh Babu also accompanied the delegation.


In a statement BJP State President Kummanam said the ongoing political killing could come to an end if the CPM took the initiative. Around 50 houses of BJP workers too were attacked in the last two days alone. Kannur witnessed hundreds of such attacks after Pinarayi Vijayan government came into power, he said.

The CPM should come forward to put an end to the political killings. If Chief Minister is unable to ensure peace in his own village, he is not eligible to handle the home portfolio. He should relinquish the same, Kummanam added.
