The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) carried out a ‘Jan Raksha Yatra’ (people’s protection march) in Delhi as a mark of protest against the alleged killings of party activists in Kerala by the Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPM). In response to the same, the CPM took out a counter-protest on the streets of the national capital, and marched against the “false allegations by the BJP in Kerala”.
The anti-CPM protest was attended by union ministers, VK Singh and Kiren Rijiju.
“Wherever the Left-wing governance exists, they resort to such killings to scare people. I am going to Kerala tomorrow to support our party workers there. I hope that with our full efforts, we will succeed in defeating the Leftist governance”, Singh said.
The minister further raised slogans of ‘Vande Mataram’ and said that the protest march would make the public aware of what the Kerala Government and the Left-wing are doing.
“Wherever the Left-wing political parties have formed a government, they have always threatened people with murder,” Singh said.
“The communist party constitutes a major part of anti-national elements”, Rijiju quoted during the march.
He claimed that the communist party would soon be “wiped out of Tripura” in the next polls.
