The latest brutal killing of S. L. Rajesh, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS) Basti Karyavaha (Secretary), of Edavaokode near Thiruvanthapuram in Kerala, has again brought the issue of murder politics by the Communist Party of India (Marxist) to the forefront and this assault on Swayamsevaks especially coming from ordinary background and downtrodden castes is an attack not only on RSS but also on Human Rights and democratic ethos of the country, said Dattatreya Hosabale, Sah Sarkaryavah of RSS on Friday in New Delhi.
Despite being at the receiving end, RSS has always tried to get into a dialogue process, at least three times in the past, each time it was responded with either a ridiculing or backstabbing by killing another Swayamasevak within months, he added.
RSS further alleged that, the history suggestes that this politics of violence is not limited to CPM versus RSS as many intellectuals try to portray, but actually it has been CPM vs all others who try to stand up against their politics and atrocities, including their own cadre who dare to stand against the party.
