Yogi: CPM, Congress promote ‘love jihad’, terrorism in Kerala

Monday, 22 February 2021 | Kumar Chellappan | kochi

The CPI(M) and the Congress were hands in glove to appease the minorities in the State  of Kerala according to Yogi Adityanath, Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.

“While the Government of Uttar Pradesh has brought in laws banning Love Jihad and terrorist activities, the Kerala Government is taking steps to encourage love jihad and help terrorism. The CPI(M) Government is also encouraging setting up of Halal Bank in the State,” said the UP Chief Minister while inaugurating the Vijay Yatra of the Kerala BJP from Kasaragod in the north to Thiruvananthapuram in the South.

The Yatra being led by K Surendran, Kerala BJP chief, would pass through all assembly constituencies  in the State, getting ready for the upcoming assembly election.  A huge crowd had gathered at Kasaragod to greet Adityanath and listen to him.

The UP Chief Minister who flew down to Mangalore from Lucknow travelled by car to Kasaragod to flag off the rally. Most leaders of the faction-ridden  Kerala BJP were present at the inaugural function. P C Thomas, a leader of the Kerala Congress faction who was with the Congress-led UDF till last week had turned up for the inaugural function. Thushar Vellappalli, who had been grilled by the UAE Police in connection with a case of financial  embezzlement too was present to greet the rally.

Adityanath reminded the audience that the people of Tripura had dumped the CPI(M) which ruled the State continuously for more than 25 years and voted for the BJP in the last assembly election because of the authoritarian and corrupt CPI(M)

government. “It is for the people of the State of Kerala to vote out the corrupt CPI(M) government in this State.  The government led by Pinarayi Vijayan is enmeshed in corruption while thousands of youth are demonstrating in front of the Secretariat for jobs due to them. But the CPI(M) is violating all norms and appointing relatives and associates of party leaders into government service,” said Adityanath.

The BJP had opened its account in the Kerala Legislative Assembly for the first time in 2016 when its nonagenarian candidate O Rajagopal won from Nemam in Thiruvananthapuram district.

Though BJP leaders claim that the party would win considerable number of seats in the State, factionalism and charges of corruption have dampened the spirit of the cadre.
