THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Former Kerala Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala today warned the CPI(M) and BJP of 'dire consequences' if both parties do not stop the 'violence' unleashed against Congress workers after the assembly polls.      

As many as 142 small and big incidents of political violence had been reported in the last three days soon after the results were announced, he said.         

"CPI(M) and BJP activists have been indulging in violence and attacking Congress and UDF workers since the results of the May 16 assembly polls were announced. It is a matter of great concern," Chennithala said in a press note.           

It was unfortunate that no leaders of CPI(M) or BJP had deplored the attacks so far, he said.    

Chennithala alleged that a large number of Congress and Indian Union Muslim League activists were attacked and their houses and offices damaged.         

"These all indicate towards the politics of violence and intolerance of CPI(M). BJP is indulging in attacks after sowing the seeds of communalism. Congress warns of dire consequences if both parties do not stop violence unleashed against Congress workers after the assembly polls," he said.
