New Delhi, Mar 9 (UNI) Deputy Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha V K Malhotra and Delhi BJP chief Harsh Vardhan today said the Kerala Government should immediately be dismissed with imposition of President's rule.

It assumes significance in view of the increased political rivalry between the RSS and the CPI(M) spilling over from Kerala to Delhi today. Angry over the loss of five members in Kannur since Friday, the RSS allegedly vented fury on the CPI(M) headquarters in Delhi, pelting stones and vandalising.

Addressing the mediapersons, both the BJP leaders sought to wash hands of the incident, demanding arrest of the culprits behind the violence. They called the responsible people as unruly elements, who the CPI(M) alleged, were the RSS workers. Besides, they also wanted the culprits booked against attempt to murder.

According to them, when the Hindu Manch and the BJP visited the CPI(M) headquarters at Gole Market today, to protest against the massacre of the RSS workers in Kerala, few criminal elements, already present at the spot, started throwing sharp edged weapons, brickbats, chairs and butts of woods from the roof top of the office. In turn, the CPI(M) members started attacking the women also, they alleged.

Sarva Shri Mool Chand Chawla, Purushottam, Rekha Srivastava, Harish Avasthi, Satyeshwari Joshi, Sharad Anand, among others, were seriously injured in the attack, the BJP leaders claimed. The cars of many including Delhi vice president Poonam Azad were also damaged in the attack.

Turning to Kerala, they called for judicial inquiry by a Supreme Court judge into what they called 'state sponsored atrocities in Kerala'.

They accused the the CPI(M) workers, Kerala police and the state government of fatally attacking the RSS offices across the state.

''Five RSS workers have been murdered in these attacks and three have been handicapped,'' they addded. More than 30 houses of the workers have been set on fire with about a dozen other supporters looted and ransacked, they added.
