In the wake of the arrest of four SDPI members on charges of murdering RSS worker Shyam Prasad, 24, in Kannur the other day, BJP State president Kummanam has demanded a ban on organisations like the SDPI and PFI.

Talking to reporters here on Saturday, Mr. Rajasekharan said probe into the murder should also unearth the circumstances and the conspiracy that led to it.

He accused the CPI(M) of taking a soft stance towards ‘terror outfits’ such as the SDPI and the PFI in Kannur - a CPI(M) stronghold. Mr. Rajasekharan alleged that the murder of the RSS man was evidence to the fact that there existed a Jehadi-Left nexus in that part of the State.

Terror nerve centre

“They are SDPI workers during the day, but are sheltered by the CPI(M) in their hideouts at night,” he alleged.

Kerala had become the nerve centre of terror, with the State government failing to curb such activities, he maintained, asking the State government to outlaw the SDPI and the PFI failing which the demand would be taken up with the Union government.
