A picture of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un on CPIM poster has triggered a quirky attack on the Left in Kerala. And the man behind this is BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra who tweeted about it. Spotting a CPIM poster somewhere in Kerala, Patra tweeted that CPM has converted the state into a killing field. “Kim Jong-un finds place in CPM’s posters in Kerala!! No wonder they have converted Kerala into Killing fields for their opponents! Hope the left is not planning to launch missiles at the RSS, BJP offices as their next gruesome agenda!,” tweeted Patra. Notably, Kim Jong-Un has said that he would nuke the United States with his missiles that he keeps launching at frequent intervals.
Meanwhile, the poster is an invite to all CPM cadres to attend the party meet in Nedumkandam on December 16-17. As per India Today, the CPI-M’s district secretary said the poster must be a mistake made by the party’s local factions. He added that the party has asked that it must be removed. In the past, the CPM has reportedly used images of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin on their posters, but Kim Jong-Un’s is definitely a first.
The BJP has time and again raised hue and cry over the killings of RSS workers by Left cadre in Kerala. BJP President Amit Shah had kickstarted the yatra in the state on October 3, which went on for 15 days. Later, Shah had asked Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan if he was prepared to take moral responsibility for the killing of 13 innocent BJP/RSS workers. “I am asking the Kerala chief minister, whether he is prepared to take moral responsibility for the killing of 13 BJP/RSS workers in the state after the LDF government came to power,” he had said.
The RSS and CPM fight in Kerala has seen numerous acts of political violence in the recent times. There have been as many as 96 political killings in the state since January 1995 and 42 of the victims were associated with BJP-RSS. Near about 40 killed were from the CPI (M). Kannur records more than half of the total political killings due to the rivalry between BJP-RSS and CPM in Kerala since 2006.
