    We have to condemn the police arrest of Mr. A Vasu and others, Govt should take action against such organization who has never made anti government activities in Kerala. What Govt has to do is to arrest those fascist RSS linked organization as they are more active and responsible for all the bomb blasts in the country. Leave the poor and take the real terrorists into custody soon….
