published on August 3, 2013

Sri Ramesh, a Swayamsevak and BJP State Leader was brutally murdered on 19th July, 2013 at Maravaneri, Salem. For the first time, various leaders, cutting across party, caste and other affiliations, have strongly condemned the murder. Tamil Nadu is witnessing attacks/murders of Hindu leaders for the past several decades.

On 1st August, Sri L K Advani senior BJP leader came down to Salem to participate in Shraddhanjali to Auditor Ramesh and spent about an hour with the family members of Ramesh. Addressing a gathering of around 12,000 people at Jawahar Mill Grounds he said, “BJP is determined to provide good governance as it has zero tolerance to terrorism, violence and corruption…”

“Ramesh was a good person with no known enemies. He was a patriot who loved his country and worked for it. BJP has had a bloody past with several of our leaders murdered by rival groups. The governments have, however, remained mute to such attacks and not taken any preventive measures so far”. He wondered why anti-national elements should target BJP and sangh parivar functionaries.  He welcomed the decision to form a SID and urged the CM to arrest the accused as early as possible.


In the meeting Tamil Nadu BJP state president Pon Radhakrishnan said, “Dr Aravind Reddy in Vellore was hacked to death by an unknown gang. The murder was planned in a prison and police didn’t probe into that matter. Instead, they have arrested someone but not the actual accused. The Tamil Nadu Police has to come out with proper explanation.” He also alleged the murders were due to mistakes committed by police.
