BJP to take out march against political violence in Kerala

Posted October 04, 2017

BJP chief Amit Shah announced that he will conduct "padyatra" (march) against CPI (M)'s "violence" in Kerala from Tuesday.

"I am asking advocates of human rights, why they don't see the atrocities committed by the Left party?" The BJP president held Vijayan responsible for the incidents and said the Communist leader should be made answerable to people for the murders.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will be the star attraction at the Bharatiya Janata Party's padayatra in Kerala on Wednesday.

He further added that due to the desperation of the CPI (M), it is playing murder politics and because of that many CPI (M) leaders are quitting the party to join BJP. "If he does not have answers, then I am saying that Chief Minister Vijayan is himself responsible for the killings", Shah thundered before flagging off the party's "Jana Raksha Yatra" or "March for People's Protection" from Kannur district.

Manoj Tiwari, the president of the Delhi BJP, would lead the march, said a statement issued by the party on Tuesday. "Serving the nation through constitutional ways is the democratic right of the BJP and RSS workers, and the murder of our workers under a conspiracy is also the murder of democracy", alleged Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari. The attack took place around 9:30pm when the BJP workers were decorating a part of the National Highway 66 for the march.

The yatra slogan, "All have to live! Against Jihadi-Red Terror", from Payyannur will travel through the state before ending in Thiruvananthapuram on October 17. The party underlined that the "M" in CPI (M) stood for "Maoists" and not "Marxists".

He said attacks against RSS and BJP workers have spiked whenever Communists assumed power in the state. The BJP is working overtime to become a potent force in the state by 2019 Lok Sabha polls. "After all, we have grown in vote share in Kerala - from a mere 3% to 15% in recent years".

The BJP president spoke in Hindi and his speech was simultaneously translated into Malayalam.
