A day after BJP’s Kerala president Kummanam Rajasekharan circulated a video claiming ‘Jungle Raj in Kerala’ on a social media site with the caption “Brutality, bestiality at its worst – Kannur communists celebrate murder of RSS Karyakarta Biju, whom they beheaded”, the police have registered a case against him for circulating a “fake” video.

“Let them investigate and register a case. I’m prepared to go to jail,” Rajasekharan told reporters at Kochi. He claimed that CPI(M) workers had celebrated the killing of the RSS worker, Biju, in at least 14 places in the state.

The video created a sensation in Kerala with many angry reactions against the CPI(M). A day before Rajasekharan’s post, an RSS worker, Biju, was hacked to death, allegedly by CPI(M) activists, in Kannur. This was the latest in a series of violent political clashes between the CPI(M) and the BJP in the state.

Talking to reporters in Kannur, CPI(M) state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan alleged that the BJP state president had tried to incite violence by circulating the video. He  said the video could be a party celebration in connection with some other party functions. He claimed that during the previous UDF government, 27 activists of the CPI(M) had been killed by the RSS but at that time the BJP did not demand action.

The chief minister had yesterday informed the state assembly that a case would be registered against Rajasekharan if necessary, for allegedly “spreading false” reports related to the killing of the RSS worker in Kannur. He also asked the state BJP president to explain where the celebrations had taken place.
