Venkaiah Naidu warns CPM on political killings in Kerala
"In the eight months of the CPM rule, around 80 individuals have been murdered. I warn the CPM that you will get it back politically," he said
Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu has warned the CPM of dire consequences if BJP workers continued to be physically targeted in Kerala.
Speaking at a function in Kottayam on Wednesday, Naidu said the whole country was watching the happenings in Kerala.
"In the eight months of the CPM rule, around 80 individuals have been murdered. I warn the CPM that you will get it back politically," he said, as reported by The Times of India.
He also slammed the CPM for talking about intolerance and going on a killing spree."If you have guts fight us politically and ideologically," he challenged the CPM.
"I want the CPM to know that things are changing. Red and blood won't succeed anymore. Lotus will bloom in Kerala," he said, adding that the BJP would only grow more with this oppression from the CPM. He also said the huge disparity between the rich and the poor in the country are the ill-effects of the Congress and Communist ideologies.
“Congress and the CPM are two sides of the same coin. In Delhi, they are together and in Kerala they are at loggerheads. This has resulted in the degradation of political standards. This has also encouraged the anti-national forces," he said.
He also said that in the next elections, BJP will become the single largest political party in the state, ending the "unholy nexus between the LDF and the UDF".
