He said that the party members are being threatened and lynched since the Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPM) has come into power in Kerala.
“Since the CPM formed its government in Kerala, more than 12 workers of the BJP and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) have been mercilessly murdered. Life can be taken with a bullet, but the bodies of our workers were chopped to pieces to instill fear, even then we aren’t scared of sacrifice. We won’t revert with violence unlike the communist party. We do not believe in the politics of violence,” Shah added.
The BJP chief alleged that at least 120 BJP workers have been killed since the communists came to power in Kerala.
“The chief minister of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan, should be ashamed of himself because maximum political killings have taken place in his own home district,” he added.
