Jaitley fails to recall real martyrs, says MB Rajesh in open letter

Jaitley fails to recall real martyrs, says MB Rajesh in open letter

Union Finance minister Arun Jaitley who met the family of slain RSS worker Rajesh slammed the CPM over political killings in Kerala.

Union Minister Arun Jaitley today said the rollout of Goods and Services Tax (GST) was "extremely smooth" in the country.

After meeting the family of murdered RSS worker, Jaitley had said: "Visited the family of our deceased karyakarta Rajesh, who was slaughtered in the most barbaric manner".

Jaitley paid a visit to the relatives of Rajesh, an RSS activist who was killed in the state recently.

The state had been witnessing a cycle of violence involving BJP-RSS and CPM workers with the capital district rocked by incidents of attacks on houses of rival partymen.




"Jaitley, who is a central minister, should also visit the houses of CPM workers who have been killed in attacks", he added.

The police too were expected to be fair and if these two things did not happen, the incidents of violence would not end in the state, he added.

At a condolence meeting here after visiting the family members of slain RSS worker Rajesh Edavakode, Mr Jaitley said the RSS and BJP could not be suppressed with violence, and asked the CPI (M) to "introspect". "I also appeal that we must stand together in providing help to those families which have suffered due to continued violence", he said. The government should summon the political will needed to ensure law and order and peaceful coexistence. Instead, he has come to visit the families of RSS workers which itself shows that he can not get past political partisanship, he added. Since the BJP and the RSS were aware of the fact that communal violence does not take place under the LDF regime, they have been looking at increasing instances of political violence, said Balakrishnan.

After the issue surfaced in the media, the BJP dismissed R S Vinod, convener of BJPs co-operative cell in the state, whose name was mentioned in the purported party report. "All these people who are sitting here have lost their near and dear ones to BJP and RSS workers", he said. They had apprised him of the arrests made in the murder case. The issue was raised in both houses of parliament by BJP top leaders expressing their deep concerns over the issue of political killings in Kerala.
