NEW DELHI: The RSS today demanded a judicial probe into the "political killings" of its workers in Kerala, alleging that they were aimed at containing its expansion in the state.
RSS Joint General Secretary Dattatreya Hosabale claimed that 14 RSS workers have been killed since October 2016.
"The Kerala government should fulfil its constitutional responsibilities and check this political violence. There should be a judicial inquiry by either a judge of high court or Supreme Court in the murders of RSS workers in the state," Hosabale told reporters here.
"Our workers are targeted as more common and poor people are joining the RSS which is not going well with the ruling CPI(M) that's why they are killing our workers," he alleged.
"These are not just murders but are political killings," he said.
Replying to a question on the need for imposing president's rule in Kerala, the RSS leader claimed the people of the state feel so as the law and order has completely broken down.
He also said Union minister Arun Jaitley will also visit the house of RSS worker Rajesh who was killed allegedly by CPI(M) workers.
