Yogi Adityanath Protests Against CPI (M) For Targeting BJP Workers

Launching the march in the chief minister's home turf Kannur, BJP chief Amit Shah on Tuesday had launched a frontal attack on Vijayan holding him responsible for the killing of 120 BJP-RSS workers in Kerala since 2001.

Adityanath was flanked by Kerala BJP unit president Kummanam Rajashekharan in the seven-kilometre Jan Raksha Yatra.

Speaking to reporters during the rally, the BJP chief said the point for the rally is to focus "political violence" in the state.

"While talking about BJP's Janraksha Yatra, the CPI-M leader said, "It is a case of the pot calling the kettle black".

Kannur, home to Kerala's Communist Party of India (Marxist) chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan, has witnessed numerous murders of CPM and Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS).

BJP leaders V. Muraleedharan, C.K Padmanabhan, Union minister Alphonse Kannanthanam, MPs Richard Hay, Nalinkumar Kateel, Suresh Gopi, O. Rajagopal, MLA and C.K Janu were among others were present at the inauguration of the Yatra.

BJP National President Amit Shah speaks at the launch of the party's "Janaraksha Yathra" at Payyannur in Kannur on Tuesday.

"Let Yogi Adityanath learn from hospitals and schools in Kerala to help children of his state", she said.

The campaign seeks to highlight killings of RSS-BJP workers and sympathisers by CPI (M) cadres as a communist terror, glossing over counter killings of CPI (M) workers by RSS which are almost equal in number, as per various media reports.

"The BJP yatra is to generate awareness on the violence and killings of political workers and those of our ideology". It was a strategic step as BJP is attacking the CPI (M) over "political killings" and alleged that 14 of them were killed in the CM's hometown alone in last 16 years.

Goel too hit out at the Kerala government and also blamed the local police for the violence against BJP-RSS workers. The yatra (people's protection march) will travel through the state before culminating in Thiruvananthapuram on October 17. "But, there are allegations of political killings on the West Bengal, Kerala and Tripura governments because such types of incidents are taking place over there".

The UP CM is in Kerala to participate in the BJP rally, "Jana Raksha Yatra". I want to ask Pinarayi Vijayan... "So it would be good if at least the people here are saved from the petroleum price hike", he said.

Singh claimed that the BJP protest was aimed at preserving the Gandhian principle of non-violence, democratic values, the country's culture.

He also highlighted the timing of the BJP's ongoing agitation.
