Kerala BJP on Sunday called for a statewide strike after one RSS functionary was stabbed to death in Sreekaryam near the state capital Thiruvananthapuram on Saturday. The BJP alleged that CPI-M workers are behind the murder which took place on Saturday night, but it is also said that the killing was out of personal rivalry. The police have arrested all the accused.
The death comes amid the poltical clash between the two parties in which a BJP state office was attacked and CPI-M state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan’s son’s house was attacked on 27 July - all in Thiruvananthapuram. Both sides went on an attacking spree on each other's party offices, resulting in major property damage.
