Payyannur: Amit Shah, B.J.P. National President, stated that Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan is responsible for all violence including murders which are quite frequent in Kerala. He was inaugurating ‘The Janaraksha Yathra’ (The travel to protect the people) organised by the Kerala State unit of B.J.P. in Payyannur, Kannur District. The blood stains of political murders are seen in the clothes of Pinarayi Vijayan. It is a shame for Kerala. The world evaluates Kerala as the land of grat personalities like Sree Narayana Guru, Adi Sankara, Chattambi Swamikal, Ayyankali, etc. But now anarchy prevails in Kerala. Murder is murder. But some people posed as the champions of human rights react only when people of some particular groups or parties are killed. In the case of others they keep mum. The theory of intolerance raised in some exclusive occasions is totally exposed and people are fully aware of the double standards. The crores of B.J.P. members and the R.S.S. caderes of India will rally behind the B.J.P. / R.S.S. workers and the people of Kerala to protect them from violence if it is necessary. As a prelude to this national response, the B.J.P./R.S.S. workers have organised a protest march to the A.K.G. Bhavan in New Delhi, the head quarters of C.P.M. It is against the violence and atrocities in Kerala. Such protest marches shall be organised in all states against C.P.M. attacks and killngs of B.J.P./R.S.S. workers and supporters in Kerala, Amith Shah said in his inaugural speech.
​Yogi Aditya Nath, The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh will participate in the programme of Janaraksha Yathra in Kannur District where C.P.M. attacks are in large numbers. Yogi Aditya Nath will join the Padayathra and walk from Kechery to Kannur.
​B.J.P. State President and the Captain of Janaraksha Yathra – a state wide campaign against atrocities of C.P.M. and Jihadis against B.J.P./ R.S.S. workers and the people in Kerala – stated that the Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and C.P.M. are neglecting the burning issues in Kerala though they are enthusiastically and eloquently exaggerating event minor issues and incidents in North India. He is like dump and blind towards the tragic plight of the poor tribal youth who had to carry the dead body of his relative on his shoulder from hospital to the hamlet in Attapadi Hills. Mr. Kummanam Rajasekharan warned the Chief Minister that he would face the protest of the whole India unless he and his party stop the political attacks and the killings in Kerala.
