The CPI(M) State secretariat member Ch.Narasinga Rao and city president B.Ganga Rao alleged that without any provocation, the BJP activists not only staged a protest at their office but also roughed up some of their activists. The BJP members raised slogans against the CPI(M) for continuing murder politic s in Kerala against the perpetrators of the attacks due to support from the CPI(M) led government there.
