BJP national president Amit Shah on Tuesday said that his ‘Jan Raksha Yatra’ will create awareness in people of Kerala against 'red terror'. He said if they don’t come forward, the ruling party CPI (M) would continue “political murders” in the state.
He said 13 workers have been brutally murdered in a short span of time. While talking to ANI, he said he chose Kannur because most political murders took place in the district.
Shah said the movement will continue till October 17 and party leaders and activists will organise similar padyatra in other state capital, including Delhi.
