PM Modi at Kozhikode meet: Sacrifices of BJP workers in Kerala will not go in vain

Kozhikode: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday asserted that the sacrifices of BJP workers in Kerala will not go in vain and will bear fruit even as party president Amit Shah claimed that the saffron outfit will form the next government.

Referring to the big crowd at a party rally, Modi sought to link it with its increasing strength in a state where it has mostly been a minor player before emerging as a force to reckon by garnering near 15 per cent votes in the last assembly polls.

"In Kerala, workers of Bharatiya Jan Sangh and BJP have sacrificed their lives. Their martyrdom inspires party workers in the rest of the country. Their sacrifice and sufferings will not go in vain," Modi said.

"At some point of time, their sacrifice will bear fruit. Destiny of Kerala will change and BJP will be instrument to do it," the Prime Minister said, apparently referring to political violence in the state in which many BJP and RSS workers lost their lives.

Hitting out at the CPM, Amit Shah said the attack against BJP workers is not new and they are facing violent attack even in the Chief Minister's constituency.

"They are thinking that they would be able to stop the growth of BJP in Kerala through violent attacks. They are wrong. BJP will further gather strength despite such attacks," he said.

Party will give a befitting reply to the forces unleashing violence through all democratic means, Shah said.

Referring to the party's performance in the May 16 Assembly poll, the BJP president claimed he was confident that in the next polls in Kerala, the party would form government.
