New Delhi: With just two months left for assembly elections in Kerala, a Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) delegation will meet the Election Commission over 'political killing' in the state.

While the BJP and RSS have been at loggerheads with the Left for a while now, but the murder of  a party functionaries has witnessed a spike in recent months.

On Monday night, CPM and BJP workers had clashed near Thiruvananthapuram. 43 people were injured from both sides including two policemen. The condition of one of the BJP workers is said to be serious.

Last month, a 27-year old RSS worker in Kerala was hacked to death in front of his aged parents at Papinesseri in Kannur district.

Another RSS worker was also attacked in Kannur in front of school students.

Earlier, BJP MP MJ Akbar said the Left has no answer to give to the people over this "continuous" politics of violence and killings.

"In Kerala, the Left has opted for a continuous politics of murder and violence. Over 200 BJP activists have been killed," the Rajya Sabha MP alleged, adding that "the Left has no answer to give to the people".

"The Left has been shaken by the rise of BJP in Kerala and is trying to intimidate it through violence, murder and killings. But the people will not accept it and will give a befitting reply on election day, which is not far away," he said.
