THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Putting pressure on Union Defence Minister Arun Jaitley who’s all set to visit slain RSS leader Rajesh’s house, 21 families of RSS attack victims will stage a dharna in front of the Raj Bhavan on Sunday. The CPM workers and families - who suffered owing to BJP-RSS attack - are staging the protest demanding Jaitley to visit their houses. The families of RSS attack victims also wrote to Arun Jaitley.  CPM district secretary Anavoor Nagappan wrote an open letter to the minister elaborating on the double standards of the BJP in the issue. 


“If the Union Minister is sincere in his attempt, he should visit those who suffered injuries or lost their family members in RSS attack. In Thiruvananthapuram district alone, CPM lost 21 workers owing to BJP-RSS attacks. In addition many houses were attacked. Instead of listening to their woes, the union minister is attending BJP’s political campaign,” said Anavoor Nagappan. In another development, A K Remya, president of Eranholi grama panchayat in Kannur wrote an open letter to the Union Minister elaborating on the plight of her husband who is hospitalised following RSS attack.


She pointed out her husband was brutally attacked by RSS men. Urging the Union Minister to intervene in the issue, she requested him to ask the RSS leadership to desist from attacks on peace-loving people in the state in addition to requesting him to visit her husband who’s in hospital for 33 days.
