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. Kannur, the site of particularly bloody clashes, is the CM's home district.
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.
Ahead of the Janaraksha yatra in Kerala, BJP President Amit Shah on Tuesday said that the yatra is being conducted not only by BJP workers of the state but with the active participation of BJP workers across the country. The BJP chief met the family members of RSS-BJP workers killed in the political violence in the state and also inaugurated an exhibition organised in their memory.
Shah also announced the party will campaign for the next two weeks in all Indian states against the killings, the Press Trust of India report said. "More than 84 BJP and RSS workers have been killed in the district alone". He also said that the BJP Chief, Amit Shah has been frequently visiting the state and has been telling his workers that they should try and win the faith of as many voters as possible. The yatra is the beginning of the end of the CPI (M)'s politics of violence, he said and appealed to the people to remove the Left party from power and bring in a BJP government for peace and prosperity.
He warned that the CPI (M) will be exposed at the national level by BJP workers.
