Aikya Vedi leader’s arrest: RSS to protest Govt policy

via Pioneer News Service | Kochi published on July 6, 2006

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) will organise a mass movement against the anti-democratic policies and alleged misuse of police machinery by the LDF Government in Kerala.

RSS Prantha Karyavah AR Mohanan told reporters here on Thursday that the arrest of the Sangh’s Vibhag Prachar Pramukh and Hindu Aikya Vedi leader Valsan Thillankeri in Kannur on Monday had brought into the open the anti-democratic policies pursued by the LDF Government.

He said if the Government continued to misuse the police force, it would harm the prevailing peaceful atmosphere in Kannur district.

Valsan had earlier been arrested and released by the police, as they had found he was not involved in the murder of CPI(M) worker KK Yakub last month.

For the past many days, Valsan was under police protection because of threat from certain extremist forces. His arrest on Monday was part of a conspiracy by the Government, Mohanan alleged.

Mohanan also alleged that Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan was responsible for the arrest. He said that the incident was a reflection of the unholy nexus between the CPI(M) and certain Muslim extremist organisations, made during the last Assembly elections.

He asked the Government to arrest the culprits in the murder of Hindu Aikya Vedi leader Ashwini Kumar and RSS leader Sunilkumar.

The RSS leader said that all organisations in the Sangh Parivar would join the mass movement against such ‘undemocratic activities’. The Sangh would organise marches and dharnas at all district headquarters on July 13. From Friday to July 13, a State-level campaign would be held and State RSS leaders would hold a fast in Kannur.

The Sangh will also form a ‘democratic protection forum’ to protect human rights and democratic values. RSS leaders have also decided to submit memorandums to Chief Minister VS Achuthanandan and Home Minister Kodiyeri
