Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today slammed the Opposition parties over the alleged killing of RSS worker in Kannur city of Kerala. “On behalf of the BJP, I would like to ask a question that the whole organisers of composite heritage — the Congress, the Left and Sharad Yadav and all other sitting together, how they consider the merciless killing of RSS worker in Kannur by the CPM supporters and their goons. Is it a part of composite heritage of India,” Prasad asked and said this is “hypocrisy.” He said,”These are the alliance of losers who are now talking of composite heritage.” Prasad condemned the Opposition saying, “they have a problem because the country is progressing under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi” On Sharad Yadav, he said, “I just want to say the person whose political career started during the JP movement opposing the Congress now he is feeling blithe by sitting with Rahul Gandhi.”
Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had met the family of a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh worker, Rajesh, in Kerala earlier who was killed recently in Thiruvananthapuram. Jaitley condemned the killing and said the kind of wounds that were inflicted on Rajesh would even have embarrassed terrorists.” He also slammed the state government saying, “Every time the LDF is in power, incidents of violence increase.” According to IANS report, The RSS, which began operating from Cannanore in 1928, a Communist bastion, has lost as many as 86 workers in as many years in the district infamous for political killings, say RSS workers.
