Kannur: Two swords along with seven iron rods and a knife were found from from the premises of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Kannur on10th October, Tuesday.

According to sources, the search operations were carried out in the wake of a recent attack on a CPM rally, allegedly by RSS-BJP activists.

The district BJP president P Sathyaprakash said that the weapons could have been planted to malign the party. “There is no need for the BJP to keep those weapons at its district committee office,” he said

Only a few days ago, Amit Shah had slammed the Left government in Kerala over the political killings of BJP and RSS workers in the state. Senior CPM leader then hit back at the BJP, saying it was actually a case of "the pot calling the kettle black" and that the BJP had always resorted to clashes and violence to expand their presence in the country.    

The BJP recently launched the Jan Raksha Yatra, which was also attended by Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath to protest against the killings of BJP and RSS cadres in Kerala.
