NEW DELHI: Hundreds of CPI(M) activists marched to the BJP Headquarters in Delhi on Monday, 9 October, in protest against the killing of CPI(M) activists by the RSS-BJP in Kerala.
CPI(M) leaders including General Secretary Sitaram Yechury, and Polit Bureau members Prakash Karat & Brinda Karat addressed the gathering.
Yechury said, “On the very same day when the Kerala assembly election results were announced, the RSS threw bombs and killed a CPI(M) activist in Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s constituency. Last evening, RSS workers threw bombs at a CPI(M) procession in Kannur. Five of our activists have been seriously injured, and four police personnel were also injured. The RSS blaming the CPI(M) of violence is like the thief blaming the police (ulta chor kotwal ko daante).”
“Wherever the RSS is, they create violence and divisions. That is in their DNA. The communists, the Left, are being targeted by the RSS because we are in the way of the toxic agenda of the RSS. So we are here on the streets to tell the people the truth,” said Brinda Karat.
“The BJP’s Jana Raksha Yatra is actually an RSS Raksha Yatra, Hinsa Raksha Yatra and Amit Shah’s Son Raksha Yatra, because they want to divert the country’s attention from their own misdeeds.”
“Amit Shah inaugurated the Jana Raksha Yatra in Kerala on 3 October. Then he announced that on 5 October, he himself would do the padayatra in Pinarayi village of Kannur district because that region is the place of Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan,” said Prakash Karat.
“But on 5 October, Amit Shah-ji disappeared from the yatra, because in those two days when the yatra passed through Kannur district, it became clear that the people of Kannur and Kerala had rejected the yatra.”
“This Red Flag, which has taken its colour from our blood, will fight. There is no force which can defeat this Red Flag,” said Yechury.
The protest meeting was presided over by CPI(M) Delhi State Secretary KM Tiwari.
