Over the past few year, since the new government came into power and BJP trying to find its political ground on the line of polarisation, the state has witnessed a spate of political murders. On every occasion, both the BJP and CPM blame each other for the killings.
According to government reports, Kerala’s Kannur, a politically volatile district, has alone witnessed 96 political killings since January 1995. Out of these killings, 42 were victims affiliated to the BJP-RSS and 40 were from the CPM.
