KOZHIKODE: BJP state president Kummanam Rajasekharan said that the party would mobilise a mass campaign and convention against the CPM's "brutalities" happening in the state after that party came into power. The details of the programme would be chalked out within two days. "The programme will be kickstarted from Kannur," he said.
People from all walks of life would be made part of the campaign demanding civic rights in society. "The present situation is such that no individual can live without approving the might of the CPM in Kerala," he alleged. The BJP president cited the cases of 7-year-old Karthik in Iritty and the Dalit sisters of Thalasserry who were being victimized by the CPM.
"A lady Ayurveda doctor in Kalyaserry cannot open her clinic because of the CPM's threat. The reason is that her mother was the Congress candidate in the panchayat election. Her clinic was attacked and medicines damaged. No freedom of speech is being allowed to non-CPM supporters," Kummanam lashed out.
He said that the police and district administration were holy cows due to the fear of the ruling party. "The CM is keeping mum on the attacks. The DGP too did not break his silence. Kerala is witnessing a feudal reign," said he. He added that there was no point in physical retaliation in a democratic set up.
