New Delhi, Mar 11 (UNI) CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat today accused the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh of being involved in various incidents of attacks on the party's offices across the country and said his party will 'unmask' this politics of violence democratically.

Mr Karat told UNI that the attack on party's headquarters A K Gopalan Bhawan here on Sunday was a part of the similar attacks at its offices across the country during the same time period.

He said the recent trend of violence has been initiated by the RSS and BJP workers were following it.

Besides the attack on the Gopalan Bhawan, there have been four largescale attacks on the party offices elsewhere in the last 48 hours, he added.

The CPI(M) General Secretary said on March 9, RSS workers reached the residence of party's Karnataka head in the night and caused destruction and even threatened his wife with a knife. They then fled with his laptop and other belongings, he added.

On March 10, BJP workers stoned the Nagercoil district office of the CPI(M) and caused damage to the cars parked there, Mr Karat said.

Besides, in Hyderabad, the BJP and RSS workers caused destruction in the Sundereaya Vigyan Bhawan and attacked the party's district office.

The CPI(M) leader said his party will bring people together against this trend of shedding blood and violence and will answer it democratically.

Meanwhile, CPI(M) sources said the RSS has not adopted this view in a day. The CPI(M) took steps for land reforms in Kerala and in particular, brought together the bidi labourers in Kannaur which had upset the big landlords, a mojority of whom were connected to the RSS.

Due to lack of a mandate in Kerala, these people were bringing in heavyweights from Karnataka and were neck deep in violent activities.

This game was going on for the past two years now, the sources added.
