Agartala (Tripura) [India] October 17 (ANI): National general secretary of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Ram Madhav on Monday hit out at the Communist Party of India (Marxist), saying its cadres have gone berserk and converted Kerala into "killing fields".

"Marxist party cadres have gone berserk. They have the clandestine support of the state government, converting Kerala into killing fields," said Madhav.

Terming the CPI(M)'s ideology as violent, Madhav said the communists in their history have done violent things all over the world.

"Communists in their history have done this all over the world. Communists' ideology itself is very violent. They have done this in Bengal earlier and they are doing this in Kerala and Tripura. Yesterday, one of our supporters was killed in Kerala. We have to fight against fascist violent forces of Communism and Marxism," Madhav asserted.

The BJP leader also said that his party would propagate the "misdeeds" of the Left government through the social media.

Madhav's statement came a day after a RSS activist was allegedly attacked by CPM(I) workers in Kerala's Kannur.

The local BJP unit had alleged the attack was the handiwork of CPI(M) workers.

The attack comes at a time when the saffron party is currently taking out a 'Janaraksha Yatra', protesting against attacks on its workers, allegedly by the CPI(M) workers in Kerala.

The march, which was flagged off by BJP chief Amit Shah at Kannur, will conclude at state capital Thiruvananthapuram on October 17.(ANI)
