In a bid to counter the BJP’s Janaraksha Yatra in Kerala, the ruling CPI(M) today organised “people’s gathering” in parts of the state to highlight alleged attacks on its cadres by activists of the saffron outfit.  Inaugurating a gathering in front of the secretariat, CPI(M) state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan lashed out at the BJP-RSS combine, alleging that they were unleashing violence in the state. He termed the ongoing Yatra, led by BJP state president Kummanom Rajasekharan, a “failure” and charged the RSS with not allowing the Muslims to live peacefully in the country.

Balakrishnan urged people to fight the “communal” agenda of the RSS-BJP together. A photo exhibition of the Left party workers who died in alleged attacks by RSS-BJP activists was also organised. Family members of the Left party workers took part in the ‘dharna’ in Kannur, a politically sensitive district that has a history of clashes between CPI(M) and RSS-BJP workers. The Janaraksha Yatra was flagged off by BJP president Amit Shah at Payyanoor in Kannur on October 3 to highlight the “Red and Jihadi terrorism” in the state. The Yatra will end here on October 17.
