"Kerala doesn't need peace lessons from Godse followers", Pinarayi Vijayan tells BJP

Referring to the alleged murders of BJP and RSS cadres in Kannur and other parts of Kerala by CPI-M workers, Yogi backfired at CM Pinarayi Vijayan and the Left, terming the murders to be "politically motivated killings".

On Thursday, Shah was scheduled to lead the yatris through the Marxist hotbed of Pinarayi, the hometown of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, the run-up to which had seen the party go into a publicity overdrive.

"Amit Shah has embarked on a unsafe course of inciting violence against the CPI (M) by levelling false charges and accusations against the party", CPI (M) journal "People's Democracy" said in an editorial. The Kerala BJP had politely rejected Shah's offer to join the yatra at "some stage" in order to not cause him the needless trouble of flying all the way back the same day, Rajasekharan added.

Deeming the Bharatiya Janata Party's Jan Suraksha Yatra a "wet cracker", Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that the state did not need peace lessons from them.

BJP has escalated its high-decibel national campaign against the killing of RSS-BJP workers in Kerala by taking out padyatras through Kannur, the hotbed of CPM-RSS political violence. "Finally, Amit Shah skipped his visit to Kerala", said Ramesh Chennithala.

Shah was supposed to address an "intellectual meet" and hold a preliminary meeting about the organisation of the Parivarthana rally in Bengaluru on 2 November, according to The Hindu. "It is in the nature of the Left party to grab power at gunpoint", he said.

BJP claims that "Janaraksha Yatra" is being organised by the party to create awareness among people of Kerala against "red terror".

Yogi strongly condemned the alleged ongoing forced conversions of Hindu women in Kerala and said- "Love Jihad is an alleged trend of Muslim boys tricking non-Muslim girls into marriage", Yogi added.

The Chief Minister of India's most populous state also earlier blamed Chief Minister Vijayan for the 300 deaths in the state due to dengue and hundreds more due to chikungunya.

"Love jihad is a risky trend". Peaceful Kerala is turning violent and the communist ideology is spreading here.
