After the shocking incident of a BJP worker’s murder in Kerala’s Kannur came to light today, political blame game has kicked off between BJP and CPI(M). While it is being assumed that it was a tit-for-tat reaction after the death of CPI(M) worker two days ago, BJP is not really taking this quietly.
While the party has called for a shutdown in Kerala, reactions from all side including Congress’ are pouring in and the parties are involved in a big blame game.
After the incident was reported today morning, Kerala BJP Spokesperson accused CPI(M) leader and CM Pinarayi Vijayan of being a goon leader. And now as rightly was predicted by political analysts, it has triggered a war at the Centre as well.
BJP Chief Amit Shah who was visiting ailing Tamil Nadu CM P Jayalalithaa today also expressed his concern on the matter. Shah said that the incident is disturbing and his condolences are with Ramith, the deceased’s family.
Ramith’s father, who was also a BJP worker was killed under similiar circumstances in 2002.
Shah said ”Attacks on BJP karyakartas (workers) in CM Pinarayi Vijayan’s home constituency is a matter of grave concern and smacks of political vendetta.” Expressing concern on the matter, he added that this is a serious issue since it’s happening right in the CM’s home constituency Kannur.
He also said ”Chavassery Uttaman, Ramith’s father was similiarly killed in 2002, his mother suffered serious injuries when his house was attacked recently.”
