Thiruvananthapuram: Starting his Sunday with a rather quirky attack on the Left in Kerala, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra tweeted a CPI-M poster spotted somewhere- that has a picture of North Korean depot Kim Jong-Un on it.
Drawing a unique analogy thereafter, Patra said that this reasons the mass killing of RSS cadres in the state.
Hoping that CPI-M does not launch missile attack on the BJP, RSS offices like Kim Jong-Un’s plans to nuke the United States, Patra added, “Hope the Left is not planning to launch missiles at the RSS, BJP offices as their next gruesome agenda.”
Meanwhile, the poster is an invite to all CPI-M cadres to attend the party meet in Nedumkandam on December 16-17. In the past, the CPI-M has reportedly used images of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin on their posters, but Kim Jong-Un’s is definitely a first.
The CPI-M’s district secretary said the poster must be a mistake made by the party’s local factions. The party has asked that it be removed, the district secretary said.
Speaking to India Today, Sambit Patra added, “The poster is not an unintentional mistake. This is intentional and shows the mindset of the Left. Also exposes the intolerance brigade.”
WHAT’S KIM GOT TO DO WITH POLITICAL KILLINGS?
Kerala has long been marred with reports of RSS-Left cadres indulging in political killings.
Over the years, violence has been sparked by the smallest of provocations-a missing party flag, an altercation at a bus stop, a casual remark directed at a party leader, even the defacing of a ‘party wall’.
Killings and counter-killings have been endemic to Kerala over the ever-lasting feud between the saffron and the red.
The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has time and again raised hue and cry over what it claims are ideological murders of its workers by Left cadre in Kerala.
Insinuating that perhaps the North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un’s belligerent ideas are influencing the CPM cadres in the state, Patra has sure stirred a storm on the internet for the day.
