Thiruvananthapuram: Two RSS activists were hacked at Palkulangara in the capital city of Kerala. The victims are identified as Shaji and Shyam, who are natives of Palkulanagara. The incident happened at Dalava Junction on Thursday morning.
The two have been admitted to the medical college hospital. The condition of Shyam is stated to be critical. As per reports, it is alleged that CPI(M) cadre is behind the attack.
Similarly, on February 3, two people were injured during an attack at Thodupuzha. At around 12 pm, Arun Shaji, a Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) activist was attacked in his residence. The attackers came to his house and stabbed him in the neck and broke his arm.
Arun Shaji was admitted to a hospital by his brother Akhil Shaji and their mother. Later, few CPI(M) activists reached the hospital and attacked Akhil. Their mother, who tried to stop the attack, was also injured in the process.
The CPI(M) activists also attacked BJYM constituency secretary Srikanth and district secretary Vijayakumar in front of the hospital. The hospital's window panes were also damaged then.
In a similar incident, BJP activist Pranav was beaten up by the Students Federation of India (SFI) activists in Palakkad, Kerala, in September. The incident took place at Nemmara Boys' School. Pranav was assaulted when he tried to stop the SFI activists from attacking students in connection with the school election. Pranav suffered an eye injury.
The BJP and the Left in Kerala have blamed each other for political murders and violent attacks on their supporters. The Left parties have almost always denied these allegations.
"It is a surprise to know how a chief minister can keep quiet after witnessing continuous political clashes in the state," said Amal Krishna, an engineer from Kerala.
