Jaitley calls RSS worker's murder 'barbaric'

Not a drop of blood again CPM BJP sing the same old peace tune in Kannur

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Sunday arrived in Kerala and visited the house of slain RSS leader Rajesh in Sreekaryam.

The senior BJP leader reminded the Left Front government that it is their responsibility to ensure, those indulging in violence are brought to book.

The RSS worker was hacked to death by a group of assailants.

On the alleged irregularities connected with MCI clearance to a private medical college involving a BJP functionary in Kerala, Jaitley said the state BJP had taken prompt action against the worker. "Political will and determination by state government needed to discipline its own cadres rather than let them loose on political opponents", said Jaitley.

Nagappan said, "Jaitley should not just restrict his visit to just the RSS worker's home". I am here to express my solidarity with you.

According to The News Minute, a group of protestors gathered outside the Raj Bhavan for a sit-in in the state's capital Thiruvananthapuram, demanding Jaitley also meet the families of Left workers who have been killed in political violence over the years.

A series of clashes between CPM and BJP-RSS activists had rocked Thiruvananthapuram last month in which the 34-year-old RSS worker was murdered in Kozhikode. At Edavakode's condolence meeting, Jaitley said, "This kind of violence will neither suppress [RSS] ideology in Kerala nor scare our workers". He said if the violence had happened in a state ruled by the BJP or NDA, awards would've been returned and Parliament wouldn't have been allowed to function. Ahead of the media interaction, Jaitley also attended a meeting held to commemorate Rajesh and met victims of alleged CPM violence.

Earlier on Friday, RSS blazing all guns at CPM, urged the Central Government to intervene in the killing of its workers in Kerala. The minister defended governor P Sathasivam's summons to chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan saying that had Sathasivam remained a mute spectator, he would have failed in the discharge of his duties. Since the BJP and the RSS were aware of the fact that communal violence does not take place under the LDF regime, they have been looking at increasing instances of political violence, said Balakrishnan. The nine arrested persons in connection with the case are under the police custody for evidence collection and further interrogation.
