The CPI (M) state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan on Friday came out with serious allegations against the BJP and Sangh Parivar saying that they were attempting to turn the state into a riot centre.

This comes after steel bombs were hurled at the CPI (M) office in Kozhikode early on Friday.

He alleged that the number of attacks in Kerala have increased after the recent visit of BJP president Amit Shah to the state.

“The attempt through the continuous attacks is to fabricate the impression that the law and order situation in the Left ruling state had collapsed. There will naturally be resistance when the leaders of the CPI (M) are attacked. Through this, Kerala can be made a riot place and the Sangh Parivar is trying for that,” Balakrishnan said at a press meet in Thiruvananthapuram.

“The bomb attack on the Kozhikode district committee office of the CPI (M) was to kill the party's district secretary P Mohannan and he narrowly escaped death,” he said.

He also alleged that the attacks on the CPI (M) leaders were a well-planned conspiracy. “It is as a part of this conspiracy that the CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury, P Mohanan and DYFI leader Jinesh were directly attacked,” Balakrishnan added.  

"As many as 20 CPI (M) party officers were attacked in various parts of Kozhikode district recently. The attacks in Kerala are a continuation of the attack on Yechury. The tactics behind all these are that of Amit Shah,” he said.  

He also warned his fellow party workers to have self-control and not get rattled by the provocations of the RSS. “CPI (M) workers should not try to attack the offices of other political parties. The attacks of Sangh Parivar should be resisted by mobilising the masses,” he urged.

“As a part of this, the Left Democratic Front in Kerala will conduct protest gatherings at all district centres in the state on June 12,” he said.
