Since the Pinarayi Vijayan led government has taken charge in Kerala, the number of clashes between CPM workers and RSS workers has increased. The political situation is tense as the Left-led government is keeping mum and this stance is further paving the way for short cycles of violence to burst between workers of both parties.
Almost every week, there are attacks on party workers of both sides and the violence takes a toll on young lives. With the Left-led government failing to take any strong action and by its silence, there seems to be no end to the brutal cycle of violence that is spreading across Kerala.
Following these reports of CPM office in Kerala being set on fire, a SFI-led students rally has formed in front of Mandi House, New Delhi. Interestingly, the protesters are chanting in different languages – from Bengali, Tamil, Malayalam to Hindi – to stop violence. Heavy police deployment has also been reported around Mandi House.

However, the fresh round of tensions began when two BJP workers sustained injuries after a bomb was hurled at the Kerala BJP office in NadapKozhikode last night. They had to be rushed to hospital thereafter. Following this, a CPM office was set on fire and no casualties were reported.
Rakesh Sinha, RSS Dialogue, told India Today new channel, “The situation is getting out of control because the Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan is behind these attacks on BJP party workers. The state government is responsible for this brutal cycle of violence in the state and not making any attempt to defuse the tensions.”
The lack of initiative by the Left-led Kerala government to defuse the escalating violence in the state reflects a grim political reality. This is a sad situation in God’s own country and one that requires strict action and cannot be resolved by stoic silence.
