Amit Shah brings political murders to the fore in Kerala rally

BJP President Amit Shah will launch 15-day ‘jan raksha yatra’ in Kannur district of Kerala today

Of these, 84 people are from the Kerala CM's district.

The Delhi unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would take out a march in the national Capital on Wednesday against political violence in the Left-ruled Kerala and stage a demonstration in front of the CPI (M) office here, the party said in statement on Tuesday.

Ahead of the Janaraksha yatra in Kerala, BJP President Amit Shah on Tuesday said that the yatra is being conducted not only by BJP workers of the state but with the active participation of BJP workers across the country.

Staunch RSS follower, a priest himself, Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday will lead the launch against alleged "rise of extremism", the "increasing influence of Islamic state in Kerala", "religious conversions", "love jihad" among many other topics as part of the yatra. "We will use democratic means to answer its violence", said Javadekar.




In 2016, 4 BJP-RSS workers were killed, whereas, 3 CPM workers were hacked to death. Amit Shah said at a public meeting today as he launched the yatra from Mr Vijayan's home district Kannur. BJP chief is now in Kannur to launch a fortnight-long march, called Jan Raksha Yatra, by the party in the state to protest alleged political violence by the Left party. Addressing the party workers in the CPI (M) bastion, the BJP chief said he would not rest in peace till the "murderers of his karyakartas are brought to justice".

The BJP, which has just one member in the 140-seat Kerala Assembly, is highlighting the issue of political killings through this Yatra.

The march, a show of force by the BJP and the RSS, will pass through 11 of the 14 districts in Kerala and end in Thiruvananthapuram on October 17 when Shah will be present again.

The BJP president arrived in Kerala early in the morning. Many in the BJP thus view it as a direct challenge to the CPI (M)'s most powerful leader. It posted its most spectacular performance in Uttar Pradesh, where Yogi Adityanath was made Chief Minister.
