THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: BJP state president Kummanam Rajasekharan alleged that CPM is running berserk in Kerala in the name of attack against CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury when it had actually not happened. He was speaking to reporters after meeting Governor P. Sathasivam at Raj Bhavan here where he, along with BJP MLA O. Rajagopal, sought his intervention on the increasing attacks between CPM and BJP-RSS workers in several parts of the state. Kummanam alleged that the CPM activists are attacking RSS -BJP workers for no reason just because two activists of Hindu Sena barged in to AKG Bhavan in New Delhi and shouted slogans. He said that such attacks were happening only in Kerala.

"Ever since Yechury was heckled at AKG Bhavan, there have been numerous incidents where BJP's flags, flag masts, flex boards and BJP's offices came under attack. A total of 348 cases have been reported so far by the police", said Kummanam. He also said that BJP and RSS workers were denied justice and freedom to take out party activities. "This prompted us to meet the Governor," he said.

"We have submitted a memorandum to the Governor with pictures as he is the Central government representative. What is happening in Kerala is LDF government-sponsored anarchy. Unfortunately the police is remaining mute on the attacks being unleashed by the CPM workers. BJP leader B.K. Sajeev's house was attacked and the police didn't turn up even to record his statement", added Kummanam. It should be recalled that only last month Rajagopal had called on the Governor seeking his intervention which then snowballed in to a major controversy. It also saw BJP general secretaries Sobha Surendran unleashing a vitriolic attack against Governor and M. T. Ramesh criticizing him on his Facebook.
