New Delhi:

Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Monday asserted that the state government had intelligence that BJP might carryout attacks in some parts of the state. He alleged that saffron party is doing this to divert attention from medical college scam.

While speaking in the Assembly over CPI (M)-BJP clash, the chief minister said the government had taken precautionary measure to control the brawl. He further added that government is ready to handover the case to CBI if necessary.

He assured the Assembly that the vigilance investigation team will consider the internal probe report conducted by the BJP.

On Sunday, Union Minister Arun Jaitley had accused the state's ruling CPI(M) of unleashing its cadres for "eliminating rivals and creating an environment of violence".

Jaitley, who had visited to provide a healing touch to the family of RSS worker Rajesh, had allegedly killed by CPI(M) cadres on July 29, mounted a scathing attack on the LDF government, saying incidents of violence increased every time it came to power.

"Every time the LDF is in power, incidents of violence increase. The kind of wounds that were inflicted on Rajesh would even have embarrassed terrorists," he had told reporters.
