Kiren Rijiju claims Pinarayi Vijayan's CPM govt 'sponsoring' killings of BJP-RSS workers in Kerala

New Delhi: Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju on Monday accused the CPM government in Kerala of "sponsoring" the killings of BJP-RSS workers and said the BJP "will expose" the Pinarayi Vijayan government.

"The political killings in Kerala are sponsored by the CPM government," Rijiju said in New Delhi while participating in the Janaraksha Yatra of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

"And we shall expose it," he said, reiterating what party chief Amit Shah had said on Sunday while kicking off the Janaraksha Yatra in New Delhi, similar to the padyatra the BJP launched in Kerala on 3 October.

Rijiju said "whatever the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPM) government is doing in society does not suit democracy".

Hundreds of BJP leaders and workers marched from Connaught Place to the CPM office in Gole Market area on Monday, like they did on Sunday.

The Delhi Police had to use water canons to disperse the protesting workers of the BJP.

Minister of State for External Affairs, General VK Singh, who also participated in the Janaraksha Yatra said "wherever there is a communist government they try to instill fear among the people by spreading violence".

"Shall we fear such killings?" he asked the BJP workers, who replied with a loud "No".

"We won't fear, we shall spread awareness against the communists," Singh said.

Shah on Sunday alleged the political killings were being carried out on the "orders" of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in order to "instill fear" among people and prevent the BJP from expanding in Kerala.

On 3 October, Shah had started three day Janaraksha Yatra from Kannur in Kerala, the home district of Vijayan.
