New Delhi: To protest against the atrocities against and killings of RSS and BJP workers in Kerala, BJP president Amit Shah will lead the Jan Raksha Yatra in New Delhi on Sunday.
Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari, vice president and in-charge of Delhi, Shyam Jaju, party's national office bearers, MPs, MLAs, MCD leaders, and state office bearers will join the two kilometre long Yatra from Connaught Place to the office of the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPM), the major party of the southern state's ruling Left Democratic Front.
"The BJP workers will assemble in the Central Park of Connaught Place and will march to the central office of Communist Party of India-Marxist at Gole Market," said convener of the Yatra Rajesh Bhatia.
Shah, who on Tuesday launched the state-wide "March for People's Protection" from Payyannur in Kannur, has held Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan responsible for the political murders of BJP and RSS workers in the state.
He had also asked all the state units to hold yatras in their respective states to oppose the "Left party's politics of murder".
Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday joined the state-wide "Jana Raksha Yatra" being undertaken by Kerala BJP President Kummanem Rajasekheran.
Shah, however,failed to turn up to lead the state-wide yatra on Thursday.
The march, a show of strength by the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is to highlight the political violence of the CPM against their cadres. The 15 day yatra will cover 11 districts before reaching Thiruvananthapuram on 17 October.
