BJP will not win even one Kerala seat if they continue to create violence: CPI(M)

The CPI(M) leader took a dig at BJP president Amit Shah, saying that he "ran away from Kerala and came back to Delhi as he had to save his son who is been accused of corruption".

CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Tuesday accused the RSS-BJP of triggering violence in Kerala, saying that if it continued to do so, the saffron party would not win even a single seat in the state. Yechury said this after leading a march to the BJP headquarters here, countering the latter’s two-week long Janraksha Yatra, or people’s protection rally, in Kerala, which concludes today.

“We warn the BJP that if they continue to create violence in Kerala they will not see even one MLA elected from the state,” he said, addressing party workers in front of the BJP office. The Left party’s march was in protest against alleged acts of violence by the RSS-BJP in Kerala, while the BJP’s rallies highlighted what it described as violence by the Left.

Yechury was joined by other party leaders and workers at the rally. “The BJP-RSS is trying to build up their political and social base through violence and terror,” he claimed.

The CPI(M) leader took a dig at BJP president Amit Shah, saying that he “ran away from Kerala and came back to Delhi as he had to save his son who is been accused of corruption”. He was referring to a recent report in news portal The Wire which said a firm owned by Shah’s son Jay Shah saw a huge rise in its turnover after the BJP came to power in 2014, a charge the BJP rejected as “false, derogatory and defamatory”.

Challenging the ruling party at the Centre, Yechury said the “red flag” — a reference to the Left’s symbol — cannot be removed. “If the BJP thinks it can remove the red flag from the country, then they are mistaken, as the flag has removed fascist forces from the world,” he said. Earlier the Left party leader had said its workers were capable of giving a “suitable answer” if saffron outfits did not stop political violence.

        I never knew Yechuri is an astrologer too! Only the time will tell. So far as RSS workers were being killed, nobody spoke a word. When a wild fire accidently lights up neighbor's home, it is holy fire, but when it engulfs own home, immediately it becomes "bloody fire". The people who indulges in violence, understand only the same language.

          Those whose intelligence has been stolen by material desires, they worship demigods" (Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 7, Verse 20)"God is one and only, not a second" (Chandogya Upanishad, Chapter 6, Section 2, Verse 1)"Of him (God), there is no parents, no Lord" (Svetasvatara Upanishad, Chapter 6, Verse 9) !! vedas says "na astha pratima wasthi" that of God there is no image or Idol or any form?If you read true old testaments in Christianity also there is written no idol or image worshiping is permitted.. Our politicians are using innocent people to follow hatred based religion ideology which is no where in holy Scriptures eg: - temples, idols, ram jaanmabhomi, sandhya, Gurus, Babas, etc. This is nothing but instigating poison in the innocent people's mind.Start reading and following your own Scriptures at least follow their is only one God with no Idol before death arrives.Only true religion is ISLAM ,understand islam ,not via fake books,or post.Read Quran before commenting.95756
