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.
Earlier, addressing a condolence meeting for Rajesh, Jaitley had said the ruling party cadres were being "eliminating its political opponents and creating an environment of violence". The CPI(M), he had said, needed to introspect.
