BJP chief Amit Shah on Sunday said the ruling CPM should not be under the illusion that the growth of his party in Kerala can be suppressed by violence. Laying foundation stone for a party state headquarters here, Shah said the increase in attacks on BJP would lead to “the blooming of more lotuses in the state”.

Shah was on a three-day visit to Kerala as part of his nationwide tour to strengthen the party for the 2019 Lok Sabha election. His Kerala leg saw protests against the Centre’s notification on cattle trade rules.

But, Shah did not refer to the issue in his speeches. Shah said the start of construction of the party office marked the laying of the foundation of the BJP government in Kerala. “It has become difficult for BJP to carry out activities in Kerala. But CPM should not think that they can suppress the party’s growth by resorting to violent tactics,’’ he said, adding that BJP would do everything to ensure that those who attacked its workers got maximum punishment under the law.

He added: “In the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, BJP would get a good number of seats in Kerala. Peace-loving people of Kerala would reject the violent politics of CPM. The BJP-led NDA would form the government, ending the alternative rule by CPM and Congress.’’

    BJP has lots of black money. Thanks to Modi Baba for his demonetization Scheme for lotuses to grow even in places like Kerla. Demonetization was a pre-preemptive strike on the country to enrich BJP and all its top brass.

      Free Air Tickets and stay to Vatican City for Converted Christians for attending Sister Alphosamma beatification, Subsidy for Haj Travel to Gulf for Muslims but Hindu Sabarimala devotees travel from Erumeli to Pampa have to pay double the normal fare to KSRTC during Sabarimala Season. Since, last 6 decades, as part of Adjustment Politics between LDF and UDF, a third Front was deliberately not allowed to establish. If UDF had the support of Christians and Muslims, LDF's core voters were Atheists with Hindu names. Now, Hindu Believers with Hindu Names are realizing they being sidelined in Educational Sector, Land ownership, Economy, Business etc. Hindu Traditions, Hindu Temples etc are being controlled by Atheists. Lately, a "Hindu Revivalism" is definitely taking place in Kerala society, as a result of the insult meted to Hindu Beliefs, Hindu Customs and Hindu Traditions by the so called "Intellectuals". So, BJP/NDA is the only HOPE for Kerala's Hindu Believers with Hindu Names.

        You are learning from the Chrsitians Mr. Shah, who believe that the more you shed the blood of Christians for their faith, the more seeds of Christianity grow from the blood of the martyrs. But that can not unfortunately happen with the BJP because you cute Muslims and Christians. You cannot have it both ways Mr. Shah.

          It is not about Hindu, Muslim and Christian religious war; it is a war for unifying India by BJP removing all barrier like religious radicalization by so call secular fronts diving people on caste and creed.

            Really? Ask all natives in Australia, Mexico, Argentina, Peru I mean Mayans, Inkas etc. and poor tribals in Africa about it! Why so far, ask Goans about how they became christians! Islamists call their lies as al-taquia. What does people like you call lying for the sake of your cult? Poor Africans weer in peace until these two intolarant abrahmic cults invaded them and started war among tribes and slavery etc. Read real history friend, not marxist propa a pamphlets distributed as history! I do agree there are many peaceful service minded christians, but its spread in middle ages was anything but peaceful, Even now in India, the Pentecostals use moists in tribal areas to pit tribals against the rest to spread christinity. I am sure, mahatma Jesus, son of peace, will never will approve such thing. But like todays congies no one listens to Mahatmas!

              Don't let loose reign of terror against BJP and nationalist family members. Let them exercise their democratic right freely. Your ideology of power from the barrel and Chhaku of CPM will not suppress the right of people of kerala.

              Problem with BJP is it is more or less confined to BIMARU, Gujarat, Mharastra states only. In Karnataka BJP got some good seats that is due to di. In non BIMARU states BJP should groom local potential leaders . BJP is seen as north India Hindi imposing party. It is true. Whenever central leaders visit south India they talk in hindi and it is simultaneasouly translated in local language, It may be very difficult for BJP to make any inroads into south. Similarly in WB and Orrissa, story is same --- no local fire b leader. BJP should shun its image of aggressive Hindutva, Hindi language policy, and Beef policy. As of date BJP should deliver the goods otherwise 2018 may be difficult for its survival.BJP is surviving because there is no strong leader from Cong. If G Alliance is succesful then ?

                You are so scared of reality friend, and that is why all this 'wishful' rant! In Karnataka last LS elections BJP scored 19, congress 7 and JDS 2 seats. BJP lost embly elections because it slpit in to three factions official BJP, urappy-faction and Sriramulu faction. Now they are all together and teh embly loss was pre-NaMo days. In kerala CPM is mainly dependent on A anandan's image and his caste Hindu Ezwas, who are moving towards BJP. It will be repeat of WB where BJP will push communists to third slot before actually taking over. In Telengana they are main opposition to TRS a pseudo-Hindu party with belief in Vatsu and state support to temples/rituals etc! In AP NDA is already ru . In Punjab Capt. Amrendeer Singh makes statements more like BJP nationalist than some congress politicians, so it is another Arunachal in making. All jnow about NE and in TN ADMK both factions and even Rajni is with BJP. Until then you keep day dreaming abuot red/green flag atop red-fort!

                    How much cruel to innocent flowers? Why you try to forfeit the right of people of Kerala for supporting BJP? Don't unleash reign of terror against BJP supporter's families.

                            Antony, Bitterhoney all of the brown rapists are from the white supremacist Christian church mafia to defend and hide rapes done by chiristan priests and atrocities in churches and missionary schools. They have been spreading hatred just like they the Christians created HItler and Mussolini. I Challenge them to show atrocities by non Christians and I will put 3 million names of Christian priests who raped children from 3 to 11 years old. Ready for the challenge?

                                what opinion polls are saying is 60 Indians now support NaMo, so they are all RSS. Only bad news for you islamists is no amoingt of opportunistic ghatibandhans is going to succeed in disturbing Modi once he starts pol more than 50 percentage votes, which is expected to start from 2019. You can use excuse of EVMS no problem, but cant hide the reality staring at all traitors by any bogus stories!
