Amit Shah to flag off BJP campaign against political violence in Kerala

Amit Shah visits temple in Kannur ahead of BJP's Kerala rally

The CPI-M leaders are instigating crimes for political gains as 13 RSS/BJP workers were murdered after the party came into power in Kerala, he alleged.

Mohan Bhagawat on Saturday said, "Jihadi elements are acting out their violence in Kerala and Bengal, and while people are resisting, the state governments are supporting these anti-national forces by not fulfilling their duty, they (state governments) are on their side".

The BJP leader said political violence shoots up in Kerala whenever the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) comes to power.

During his yatra in Kerala, BJP president Amit Shah should "raise consciousness" on political violence against CPI (M) workers as much as against his party cadres for his "mission" to be of some success ("Amit Shah to lead BJP march in Kerala", October 3).




Speaking at the red citadel of Payyannur in Kannur, the hotbed of political violence, Mr Shah asserted that the attacks on BJP workers will not demoralise them and they will continue to strengthen the saffron party in the southern state. "But when BJP workers, who are supporters of a nationalistic thinking, are brutally killed, then the silence of these so-called custodians of human rights becomes risky for the country", Tiwari said.

"End of CPM will herald the end of political violence", Shah said. BJP workers were victims of "political murders", he added.

Media has reported that the BJP march will go past the home of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in the latter's hometown in Kannur on Oct 5. The march will pass through several parts of Kerala before concluding in state capital Thiruvananthapuram on October 17.

"Each march will be attended by senior BJP members and union ministers", a BJP source said. The silence of the activists over the killing of more than 120 BJP workers working on a "nationalist agenda" is a question mark on their allegiance, he said. It posted its most spectacular performance in Uttar Pradesh, where Yogi Adityanath was made Chief Minister.
