In a recent interview with a media channel, Dattatreya Hosabale said that state government was worried about its ideological commitment and not for the law and order in the state. He further alleged that with the patronage of state machinery CPM goons were vehemently killing their political rivals.
Recently, an RSS worker, E Rajesh, was hacked to death allegedly by the group of CPM workers in Thiruvananthapuram. As reported by ‘The Scroll’, S L Rajesh, a 34-year-old mason who was the basti karyavah of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh in Kallampally, was killed by a group of 12 people on July 29. The police inquest found 83 injuries on his body.
He also stated that Communist party was well aware of the rise of RSS in the state with new entrants from different walks of life. “Sangh is spreading its influence in every nook and corner of Kerala. They want to see that a threat is created everywhere, especially among the lower sections of society, so that new recruitments into the RSS don't take place,” said Dattatreya Hosabale.
Responding to the question on law and order in the state, the senior RSS leader accused the state government of shielding attackers involved in the lynching of RSS members. “Police in Kerala, many a time, have been a mute spectator. Every time the CPM came to power, the number of killings increased”, he mentioned.
“With 4,000 shakhas in the state we are gaining popularity in Kerala and the CPM is scared about it,” Hosabale said. When asked about allegations of involvement of RSS workers in violent assaults, Hosabale asserted that as many as 287 RSS workers have been killed all these years.
Slamming state administration for allowing political intervention the RSS Sah-Sarkaryavah said that the Kerala administration has not taken adequate measures in prosecuting the suspects named in Rajesh's murder.
