IN Kerala, an alliance of murderers has been formed against the LDF. The brutal murder of Sanoop, CPI(M) branch secretary, Puthussery, Thrissur, is an open declaration of this alliance. Within forty days, four young comrades were killed by the anti-communist groups in three different places. All these incidents have exhibited some similarities in character and in the arguments put forward for protecting the culprits. The nexus and the cooperation among them, RSS-BJP, Congress and Muslim League, is a reality in the state.
