NAGPUR: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh on Thursday held meetings all over Vidarbha to condemn the killing of five of its activists in Kannur district of Kerala. It also decided to organise a two-hour ‘dharna’ (sit-in) and a protest meeting at Variety Square in the city on Saturday.

Addressing reporters, Mahanagar Pracharpramukh of the RSS Vijay Patki alleged that in the last fortnight, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) workers in Kerala had been targeting RSS activists in one district of the southern state.

“In a democracy, such intolerance to those having different political thought is unacceptable. But the Communist government in Karala has turned a blind eye to this and even ignored the order of the state’s high court to deploy Central security forces in Kannur,” he said.

In a statement, RSS general secretary Mohan Bhagwat said, “For the last 25 years, the RSS has been under attack in the district. The latest killings are a continuation of the violent politics witnessed at Nandigram,” he said.
