After flagging off the Jan Raksha Yatra in Kerala’s Kannur district earlier this week, BJP President Amit Shah on Sunday led a march from central Delhi’s Connaught Place to the CPI(M) headquarters in the Gole Market area
In his speech, the BJP president took on Vijayan, saying the blame for the spate of killings falls squarely on him, considering that the maximum number of such killings have taken place in the “chief minister’s home district”.
“Politics of violence is in their (communists’) nature.It is not a coincidence that the maximum political violence isreported from West Bengal, Tripura and Kerala where thecommunists have been in power for long. Wherever they havebeen in power, they have turned the political culture intothat of violence,” Amit Shah said.
BJP’s Jan Raksha Yatra highlights:
11.48 am: Protesters begin their rally amid chants of Jai Shri Ram and Bharat Mata Ki Jai.
11. 43 am: “Human rights’ champions ka selective virodh unko expose karta hai, kyu nahi vo laal bhaiyo ke khilaf mombatti lekar nikalte (The selective outrage shown by human rights’ champion exposes them. Why don’t they organise candlelit marches against the Communists),” Amit Shah said.
11. 40 am: Addressing the rally, Shah said the Communist Party should be ashamed of the murders that took place in the Chief Minister’s area. “Since the Left came to power in Kerala, several workers of the BJP and Sangh (RSS) have been killed. The killings are brutal, bodies are chopped into pieces. It is done to terrorise those who support the BJP that they will meet the same fate. But the more muck of murders they spread, the lotus will bloom better,” Shah said.
11.23 am: Amit Shah arrives at BJP’s Jan Raksha Yatra in New Delhi.
10.05 am: “Through this yatra, the party will apprise people of the country about the inhuman acts of Leftists in Kerala. The RSS and BJP workers are being selectively murdered in Kerala. An atmosphere of terror is being created in order to finish the spirit of nationalism under a conspiracy. 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.
10.00 am: Shah had earlier announced that a ‘padyatra’ will be held in all the state capitals from Wednesday for protesting against “red terror” in Kerala. A day after Shah flagged off the rally in Kerala, Union ministers Jitendra Singh and Vijay Goel along with other BJP leaders marched in New Delhi.
