After leaving his party's march against the CPI(M) in Kerala midway, BJP chief Amit Shah is now leading one to the Left party's office in the national capital to protest against the alleged killings of Right-wing activists in the southern state. Earlier this week, Shah had kicked off the Jan Raksha Yatra (people's protection march) from Payyannur in Kerala.

Amit Shah addresses a rally in New Delhi: 

I want to question all the human rights activists. Where did they go when 12 BJP workers were brutally killed?

If they are against violence, why don't they carry out a candle march for our workers?

BJP will challenge the left, the communists, wherever they are.

I have been monitoring that Raksha Yatra. As many as 10,000 workers walk for 10 km every day. 

We will begin a Satyagraha. We will not resort to violence. 

I urge you all to join our fight against the brutal regime of the left.

BJP workers have embarked upon a Yatra in Kerala. They will be marching from different parts of Kerala to the capital, says Amit Shah. 

Shah alleges that at least 120 BJP workers have been killed since the communists came to power in Kerala. He says Pinarayi Vijayan, the Kerala chief minister, should be ashamed of himself because maximum political killings have taken place in his own home district.

The party will take out the Jan Raksha Yatra every day from every state capital till October 16.

Shah is also scheduled to lead the march on the concluding day later this month in Thiruvananthapuram. Kerala, especially the volatile Kannur district, has been witnessing a series of political killings and counter-killings of CPI(M) and RSS-BJP activists.
