On February 15, an RSS worker was hacked to death in Kannur, Kerala, before his parents allegedly by CPI(M) workers.

On Wednesday, bombs were hurled at the residence of a BJP worker and at a centre run by the RSS in Thalassery.

As Kerala heads to polls, attacks on RSS and BJP leaders allegedly by the influential Leftist party are on the rise.

No one was injured in the Thalassery incident but the brutal killing of 27-year-old Sujit resulted in the arrest of eight CPI(M) workers and a day-long shutdown called by the RSS.

Satyaprakash, BJP’s Kannur District President, alleged that CPI-M is ratcheting up their violent activities to divert attention from the arrest of its party district secretary, P Jayarajan, in the murder case of a BJP functionary in 2014.

The Marxist-party has denied any involvement in the Sujit murder case, but political killings of right-wing workers is not a new thing in Kannur, a Left bastion in the southern state.

For close to three decades, the Left and the Right have been at each other’s throats. Over 200 have lost their lives in violence between BJP-RSS and CPI(M).

But the most murder of BJP leader K.P. Jayakrishnan Master exposed the radical communism at play in Kerala. On December 1, 1999, Jayakrishnan Master was hacked to death in front of his students while he was taking class.

Five accused, all related to the CPI(M), were sentenced to death by a sessions court in 2003. But four of them were later acquitted by the Supreme Court and the death sentence of the fifth was commuted to life imprisonment.

The CPI(M) does not pardon its own members if they go against the party. Case in point is the 2012 murder of T.P. Chandrasekharan.

He was a Marxist who broke away from the main party to float his own. His murder resulted in wide spread violence in which at least 30 houses were attacked and two dozen vehicles burnt.

Eight people were sentenced to life imprisonment in connection with the murder. Three of them CPI(M) leaders.

In West Bengal,too, political killings and bomb hurling at each other is common thing. The ruling Trinamool Congress and the CPI(M) accuse each other of such activities. The states are different, but it appears that the communists in Kerala and their counterparts in West Bengal share a common affinity for violence wherever they are.
