Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) politburo member Brinda Karat on Wednesday said BJP chief Amit Shah was an “encounter specialist” and the party along with the RSS were out to disturb the communal harmony in the CPI-M ruled Kerala.
Reacting to the foot march being undertaken by Shah and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in Kerala to “spread awareness” about the alleged atrocities on BJP/RSS workers by left leaders, Karat said the people of the state know that RSS is not the victim.
“Amit Shah is an encounter specialist… They (BJP/RSS) have blood of innocent people on their hands. These people are behind communal riots. They all are encounter specialist. This is in the DNA of RSS,” Karat told reporters
“This so called yatra of Amit Shah… he thinks that by telling a lie a thousand time sit is going to become truth. People of Kerala know that RSS is not the victim, it’s the RSS and its gundas that want to disturb the communal harmony of Kerala,” she added.
Taking a jibe at Yogi for the deaths of infants in a Gorakhpur hospital, Karat said he should “learn” from the hospitals in Kerala on how to take care of children.
“Let Yogi Adityanath learn from hospitals and schools in Kerala to help children of his state,” she said.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah on Tuesday blamed Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan for the murder of 120 BJP and RSS workers in the state as he launched a three-day ‘Jan Raksha Yatra’ against the killings of party workers in the state.
The state-wide yatra was launched by Shah from Payanur in Kannur district. As part of the march, he will walk for three days, and on 5 October, he will walk past the home of Vijayan at Pinarayi as a mark of protest.
