Earlier, BJP President Amit Shah today inaugurated an exhibition where the photographs of BJP workers killed in Kannur have been displayed.
Attacking both the Congress and the Left, he said, “They should introspect why communist ideology is vanishing all over the world.

Earlier on June this year, the BJP President had said the saffron party’s growth in Kerala cannot be stopped with violence as he slammed the ruling Communist Party of India-Marxist for the attacks against BJP and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh workers in the state. He had said it was a matter of “shame” that most of the killings have occurred in Kannur, the home district of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. Shah said the BJP has found it very difficult to carry out its activities in Kerala as violence and attacks against BJP-RSS workers increase whenever CPI(M) headed LDF government comes to power, as per PTI report.
