THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday said his party will not rest till the murderers of two youth Congress workers in Kasargod are brought to justice. In a tweet, Mr Gandhi said; “The brutal murder of two members of our Youth Congress family in Kasargod, Kerala is shocking.”

He said the Congress Party stood in solidarity with the families of these two young men. “I send them my deepest condolences. We will not rest till the murderers are brought to justice,” he said. However, Mr Gandhi didn't name CPM in his tweet evoking criticism from the BJP.

 

Veteran Congress leader A.K. Antony said the CPM would be given a befitting reply for the gruesome murders. The CPM in Kerala was showing no signs of changing, he said.

“Political murders of this scale cannot be carried out without the knowledge of the top leaders of CPM. The Marxists need to be given a shock treatment in the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls. They have to be handed out a befitting defeat in the elections only then murder politics will come to an end. Only such an action will force them to keep their swords down,” he said.

 

Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala said the CPM offices in the state were turning into epicentre of murder politics. KPCC president Mullapally Ramachand-ran alleged the twin murders had yet again proved that the Marxists were not prepared to shed their Stalinist model of annihilation of political enemies.

CPM politburo member Brinda Karat said the murders in Kasargod were highly condemnable. The party is against politics of murder, she said.

Meanwhile, Revenue Minister E Chandrashek-haran indirectly criticised the CPM for the twin murders in Kasargod. The minister who hails from Kasargod said if one has a problem in distinguishing between right and wrong then that needs to be rectified. “You all know who has the problem,” he said indirectly referring to CPM workers.

 

At a press conference here the minister said political murders were highly condemnable and unfortunate. There were no violent activities in the area. “How did this happen is yet to be figured out,” he said.
