BJP state president Kummanam Rajasekharan, leading the "Janaraksha Yatra" (foot-march) aimed at protecting the people across the state, said this was evident from the government stand opposing National Investigation Agency probe into Akhila Hadia conversion case.
"The BJP workers will assemble in the Central Park of Connaught Place and will march to the central office of Communist Party of India-Marxist at Gole Market", said convener of the Yatra Rajesh Bhatia. The rally was launched to protest against CPI (M)'s alleged targeting of party workers in Kerala. It was literally an anti-Kerala campaign, the CPI (M) leader said.
Those of the CPM who were subjected to attack by the RSS-BJP, including the bedridden ones, will stage a satyagraha on Monday.
Stating that it was the CPI (M)'s strong "resistance" through mobilisation of people that prevented the Sangh Parivar from growing in the State, he said that the people's resistance should be further strengthened. Pinarayi Town is the hometown of Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan. He said that CPI (M) workers had been given clear instruction that they should not react to provocations during the yatra, he added.
According to reports, in order to condemn the killings of BJP and RSS workers in south and to highlight the incapabilites of Kerala government, as no action was taken by the government against those involved in killings, the BJP will be taking out "Jan Raksha Yatra" everyday from every state capital till October 16.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday joined the state-wide "Jana Raksha Yatra" being undertaken by Kerala BJP President Kummanem Rajasekheran.
