KOTTAYAM: BJP state leaders led by president of the party’s Kerala unit Kummanam Rajasekharan on Monday took out a march in protest against the  arson and violence at the residence of a BJP worker at Kanjikode in Palakkad, which had claimed the lives of two persons, including a woman, who succumbed to injuries early on Monday.

The protesters, who took part in the march, had their mouths gagged with black cloth.
Speaking on the occasion, Kummanam said all  political parties should come together to form a people’s movement against the CPM’s politics of annihilation.

“Kerala might be the only state in the country that reels under the tyranny of the ruling party. The government, which is bound to protect the life and wealth of the people, is tacitly endorsing violence. A political conspiracy is behind these incidents,” he said.

Kummanam also called upon the government to provide `50 lakh compensation to the family of the BJP worker and the party’s Palakkad mandalam committee member Radhakrishnan, whose house was targeted by alleged CPM activists on December 28 by four persons. O Rajagopal, MLA, C K Padmanabhan, A N Radhakrishnan, M T Ramesh, K Surendran, Sobha Surendran, V Muraleedharan, George Kurien and others also spoke.
