THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:BJP state spokesman V V Rajesh said here on Friday that he had not threatened the police in his speech made at Kayamkulam the other day. 

Rajesh said at a news conference that BJP workers had erected a flagstaff at Pathiyoor near Kayamkulam, which they could not do for the past several years, for fear of attack from the CPM workers. In order to protect the flagstaff, they had to guard it round the clock for several days during its construction. But, when it was completed, the person who bult it was hacked to death by CPM workers. But the  Kareelakulangara police had not nabbed the culprits yet, he said.

Rajesh said that several BJP workers were attacked by CPM men with the tacit permission of the local police officers.

The speech at Kayamkulam should be seen against that background.

He reminded the police that they were drawing salary from the state exchequer and not from the AKG Bhavan or Indira Bhavan, adding that the police officials who framed BJP and RSS workers in fabricated cases could not go scot-free in a democratic set-up.

Rajesh alleged that Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala had a tacit understanding with the CPM workers here. Chennithala wanted CPM’s support to win the election next time as he was afraid that the A group of the Congress, led by Oommen Chandy, would try to defeat him as they had attempted last time.
