After attack on workers, RSS demands President’s rule in Kerala

New Delhi: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) ideologue Rakesh Sinha on Sunday demanded imposition of President’s rule in Kerala, saying the law and order situation in the state has reached the level of anarchy.

Sinha, who was reacting to the attacks on four RSS members in Kozhikode district, said Kerala has reached a state of anarchy and added this is now the right time for the Centre to intervene immediately.

“The incidents of violence and the killing of RSS workers remain unabated. They are inviting a civil war as they are provoking RSS activists all over the country. Therefore, I demand imposition of President’s rule in Kerala because there is no way out,” he said.

Sinha also trained his guns on Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and accused him of orchestrating the killings of RSS members.

“The Kerala Chief Minister is determined to kill the RSS workers. He is the main accused and nobody else can be blamed. And at the same time, I accuse the CPI (M) of endorsing the violent activities of the Kerala Government,” he added.

In a yet another political faceoff in Kerala, one BJP worker and three RSS workers were allegedly hacked by a group of CPI (M) workers in Kozhikode district.

The incident comes in the wake of the ongoing tussle between the RSS and the CPI (M) in Kerala, as last Thursday an RSS office was attacked in the state.

The office was attacked hours after an RSS functionary announced a bounty of Rs. one crore on Chief Minister Vijayan’s head.
