Amit Shah launches yatra against violence in Kerala, Yogi Adityanath may attend


He further added that due to the desperation of the CPI (M), it is playing murder politics and because of that many CPI (M) leaders are quitting the party to join BJP.

These angry statements coming from the BJP are a result of the killing of as many as 120 BJP workers, 84 in Kannur alone since 2001.

The presence of ministers like Nirmala Sitharaman, Ananth Kumar, Dharmendra Pradhan, Giriraj Singh, Smriti Irani, J.P. Nadda, V.K. Singh, and Kerala's own Alphons Kannanthanam is expected to send a message to the people of the state - that the BJP is giving a lot of importance to the coastal state.

He alleged that wherever the communists had been in office, like Kerala, West Bengal and Tripura, they indulged in political violence against critics and political adversaries. It will be BJP's first major public demonstration in Kerala as it attempts to make inroads into the state's electoral politics.

Meanwhile, Stricker smartly rolled out the duo of Spieth and Reed, who always step up when they're wearing the colors of Team USA. A par by the Amercians was good enough to win the 14th, and a final 8-foot birdie putt by Reed on the 15th closed out the match.

After the yatra's launch, Mr Shah marched along with BJP state president Kummanam Rajasekharan up to Pilathara. Responding to a Facebook post of Vijayan lashing out at Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat, the RSS said that the Kerala CM was playing with fire. The yatra will continue till October 17 in Delhi and all other state capitals.

BJP's "jan raksha padyatra" was launched in Kannur's Payyannur that happens to be CM Vijayan's home town.

According to the sources during the 15-day long yatra, at least one Union minister would be present on each day of the march and some BJP chief ministers might also join them. Addressing the party workers in the CPI (M) bastion, the BJP chief said he would not rest in peace till the "murderers of his karyakartas are brought to justice". The attack took place around 9:30pm when the BJP workers were decorating a part of the National Highway 66 for the march.

"District BJP representatives showed much enthusiasm in welcoming Amit Shah at Mangaluru airport and the entire city was decorated to welcome the BJP president". "We are starting the march from Kannur because it is the Chief Minister's home district".
