New Delhi, Nov 1 (UNI) Taking note of the recent killing of four Malayalees attempting to cross over to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and the revelation about the recruitment of 300 people for terror training, the RSS today blamed the CPI-M for turning a peaceful state into a ''hub of terror activities''.
In an obvious attempt to ward off criticism, in the wake of the arrests from its own Parivar ranks, in connection with the Malegoan blasts, the RSS in an editorial comment in its mouthpiece The Organiser, said that new recruitments for terror activities were taking place for a long time under the ''patronage'' of the Left Front. The arrests of half a dozen gang leaders of the terror outfits in the last forthnight had revealed the shocking depth of their activities and political patronage they enjoyed under the Left Front, the paper said.
All this was possible because of a ''cosy relationship'' with the ''jehadi elements'' with the CPI-M. The party's grand electoral strategy was entirely vested on ''brazen pandering'' with the divisive and communal outfits. The expose has put the CPI-M in total disarray and their leaders were blaming each other and were divided on the action to be initiated by the police, the paper noted.
The ruling party was instrumental in creating a larger than life image of Abdul Nazer Madani of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), now aquitted from the Coimbatore serial blasts case. After his release from jail last year, top CPI-M leaders, including Chief Minister Achutanandan and State party chief Pinaray Vijayan had accorded massive welcome and declared their intention to go for an alliance with his outfit, the PDP. They had used Madanai's pictures to woo the Muslim voters in the 2006 Assembly elections.
Some of the CPI-M leaders were under the scanner for derailing the probe into the SIMI meeting on the eve of the Indepdendence Day in 2006.
The banned outfit was ''on the side of'' the CPI-M during the last elections. The recruitment of local youths in such a big manner had put the CPI-M on the defensive and the investigation was no longer confined within the state. There were differences within the Cabinet, with a minister sympathising with the NDF opposing the police going all out to flush out the terrorists from their hideouts. The minister was deliberately trying to drag Hindu organisations into the terror net, it alleged.
All this makes the CPI-M vulnerable in any election where terrorism is a major issue and at a time when even the Muslim League was demanding strong action against the National Democratic Front (NDF) and other terror modules accusing the CPI-M of playing ''second fiddle'' to the ''Jehadi groups'', the paper observed.
