The (BJP) on Sunday asked whether the CPI(M) was planning to "launch missiles" at the party's and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh's (RSS') offices in Kerala after a poster of Left party carrying a picture of North Korean leader emerged in the southern state. Expressing shock over the North Korean dictator being featured in the CPI(M) poster, spokesperson tweeted that it was "no wonder" that the Left party had converted "Kerala into killing fields" for its opponents. "Hope the Left is not planning to launch missiles at the RSS, offices as their next gruesome agenda," Patra wrote on Twitter. The poster was put up to invite CPI(M) cadres to attend a party meet in Nedumkandam on December 16-17.

However, the party has not clarified its stance on it as yet. The North Korean leader is known for his autocratic rule. Recently, India had expressed concern over the nuclear test conducted by and also called upon the leader to refrain from such actions that adversely impact peace and stability in the region and beyond.
