On the second day of BJP’s ‘Jan Raksha Yatra’ in Kerala, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath joined the rally in Kannur to protest against the “murder of party workers”. The rally, that began on Tuesday, will pass through the state of Kerala before concluding at Thiruvananthapuram on October 17 where Amit Shah will address the rally. The rally will help BJP focus in the state which has been completely out of its reach thus far.

On Tuesday, the BJP intensified its attack against the Pinarayi Vijayan-led government with attacks on “ruling CPM’s murder politics.” Challenging CM Vijayan, Shah said the “bloodstains of those 84 RSS/BJP workers killed in Kannur are on your clothes.” He added: “Vijayanji, I want to tell you, no matter how much muck you are creating out of violence here, you should know that the lotus will bloom in that mud.” He also criticised “human rights activists” for being “selective” in their condemnation of violence.

    Shameless Yechury does not want to even deny violence. Rather like Islamic terrorists he is saying CPI(M) are victims and their actions are justified because RSS attacked them first. same logic is used by Jihadis to justify September 11 and all other terror attacks. No wonder Communists and Islamists are best friends and brothers in arms.

        Dengue deaths in Kerala.Mass exodus of educated people to other places. Jihadi Silos and CPI will talk about all the issues in the world instead of getting it's own house in order first.

        They are taking the protest march in kerela and the opposition is taking full advantage of their march's every single day by exposing the misgovernance of Stinking chaddi gang. It is a boon and a great oppurtunity for the combined opposition to take a march on BJP and trample them. Baba Raam rahim's companion baba yogi ( that is what the opposition call him in Up and elswwhere) Aditya nath is enjoying his extended holidays in god's own country. Bechare U P ke bhaiya log...they voted him to work and not for taking out processions and protest march and enjoying the scenic beauty of kerela.People of kerela should realise this is the same guy along with a meat sha who r reaponsible for the beef ban in Up and many places. They are the face of mutton ban in our country. Remember the U P election's speech of a meat sha? Some exerpt from it ..." jab raat ko Bjp ka bahumat saaabit ho jayega toh rato raat wk addyadesh paarit karke UP ke sare slaughter house band kar diye jayenge. Same here?

            Why don't they take out the march to protest the death of 104 plus poor poor indian who died during demonitisation?How they can forget that those very poor poor people were merliclesly were put to stand in ques and their rich brigade and Bjp's big leaders were getting the money delivered at their door step? Why don' t they take out the protest march for the death of 100 plus children who died in U P hospitals? Poor children...their only crime was that they were not part of political party of stinking chaddi gang. Why don't they take out the protest march when the dalit's and muslims were beaten and killed in various places? Why do not they take out the march when thousands of farmers are commiting suicide? They won't dare do that coz their incompetence , misgovernance will get exposed. They won' t dare do that coz the only lives matter to them are of RSS workers and.their party workers. "Kyoun...? Aapka khoon, khoon hai...aur dusro ka khoon paani hai?
