CPM leader M M Mani is not alone in making murderous speeches. A threat to finish off T P Chandrasekharan was made by V P Gopalakrishnan, CPM Onchiyam local committee secretary, way back in 2010.
A video clipping of his speech telecast by channels on Monday has caused more embarrassment to the CPM, already in deep trouble over the RMP leader’s murder.
At a meeting organised to protest against the attack on CPM workers by the RMP activists on February 5, 2010, Gopalakrishnan publicly threatened that the RMP leader would be killed if he carried on with the attack on CPM workers in Onchiyam. Gopalakrishnan alleged in his speech that “Chandrasekharan himself was leading the assailant group. The CPM at Onchiyam has the might to overcome these types of challenges. We will put an end to the violence of this scamp gang at any cost.”
He added: “Chandrasekharan should realise that the CPM has the power and will to finish him off if any communist activist loses a strand of hair or sustain even a minute injury in the attacks unleashed by the assailant group led by him.”
“Chandrasekharan and team could not stay long fighting with the CPM owing to our strength. So, the RMP backtracked now. This revolutionary organisation of martyrs will overcome all challenges at any cost and Chandrasekharan and others should keep this in mind,” he added.
The then Onchiyam area committee secretary and district secretariat member C Bhaskaran Master also addressed the meeting. Interestingly, Orkatteri local committee member Padayankandi Raveendran and Onchiyam area committee member K K Krishnan, two accused in the TP murder case, had also attended the meeting.
K K Rama, wife of the slain leader, told mediapersons here that the speech was a clear proof of the involvement of CPM leaders in the murder.
