New Delhi: CPM on Tuesday slammed BJP national president JP Nadda for remarking that Kerala has become a hotspot for terrorism. It asked Nadda to advise the RSS workers not to get involved in provocative activities.
"The people of Kerala are known for their exemplary commitment to communal amity and peace and they will not tolerate any extremist violence," the CPM politburo said in a media release.
"Nadda has said Kerala is becoming a hotspot of terrorism. This false accusation cannot cover up the fact that political violence in Kerala is being perpetuated by killings and retaliatory killings indulged in by the RSS and the Popular Front of India (PFI)," statement reads.
CPM pointed out that four people died this year due to clashes between RSS and PFI in Alappuzha and Palakkad districts.
"This is a deliberate effort to vitiate communal peace in the state and create communal polarization. It would be better for the BJP President to advise the RSS not to engage in such provocative activities. The LDF government has been taking firm action against the violent activities of all extremist organisations," CPM said.
