BJP leader Nalin Kumar Kateel on Tuesday warned CPI-M against targeting BJP workers and reiterated that the Centre would intervene if they be physically targeted in left-ruled Kerala and would face retaliation in other parts of the country as well.
“They (CPI-M) will come to know about the strength of the BJP in other parts of the country if they did not stop violence against the BJP workers in Kerala,” Kateel said while addressing a meeting of BJP Kerala state committee here.
He alleged that CPI(M)-ruled state was now known for political killings while other states focused on development and economic growth.
Criticising the Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan for using the platform of state youth festival being held in Kannur for reportedly politically attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“It is a feudal government which is ruling the state. Both the Prime Minister and the BJP are being targeted by those who failed to fight them ideologically.
“BJP has emerged as a major political force in the state. That is why the party is treated as number one enemy by two major political fronts--the LDF and UDF,” Rajasekharan said.
