THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Slamming CPI(M) in Kerala, BJP President Amit Shah tonight alleged that the Left party was promoting "politics of violence" to ensure its existence.

While visiting a private hospital where three BJP workers are undergoing treatment following an alleged attack by CPI(M) workers, Shah told reporters, "CPI(M) is promoting politics of violence for its existence and the Congress in the state is providing an umbrella to the violence of CPI(M)."

"CPI(M), which is facing its downfall, is attempting to come back through violence," Shah said, adding that BJP would reply to it through votes.

"Several RSS-BJP workers have been killed by CPI(M) in the state and to stop this, BJP should come to power," he said while seeking the support of the people for the same.

The BJP chief spent about an hour at the hospital, where he met the relatives of the persons who were injured in the alleged attack by CPI-M workers at Kattayikonam near here.

Of the three undergoing treatment, the condition of one Amal Krishna (23) was said to be serious.

Former Kerala state BJP president V Muraleedharan was among 16 persons injured in the clash between workers of the  party and CPI-M at Kattayikonam on March 14.
