Thiruvananthapuram: BJP President Amit Shah on Tuesday hit out at Kerala's CPI(M)-led LDF over the political violence in the state, asking Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan if he was prepared to take moral responsibility for the "killing of 13 innocent BJP/RSS workers."
Addressing party workers at the Puthrikandam maidan in Thiruvananthapuram on the conclusion of the party's 15-day 'Jan Raksha' Yatra in the state, Shah alleged that the 13 workers were killed after the present government came to power in May, 2016.
"I am asking the Kerala chief minister, whether he is prepared to take moral responsibility for the killing of 13 BJP/RSS workers in the state after the LDF government came to power."
"CM saheb, if you want to fight us, let us fight in terms of development and ideology," he said.
Shah said if the Marxist party feels that BJP/RSS workers can be eliminated through violence even after 70 years of independence, "they are mistaken."
"I will like to tell CPI(M) that it is not possible," the BJP chief said.
He also asked

Vijayan whether people had given him the mandate for elimination of BJP/RSS workers in the state.
Earlier, Shah walked with party workers for about 2 km from the Martyr's column at Palayam to Putharikandam maidan, near the famous Padmanabhaswamy temple.
The BJP chief waved and acknowledged greetings from thousands of BJP workers as he joined the yatra led by state party president, Kummanam Rajasekharan.
He also paid tributes to party workers who had lost their lives in political violence in the state before addressing the public meeting.
Shah had flagged-off the yatra at Payyannur in Kannur, the northern district of the state with a history of clashes between CPI(M) and BJP-RSS workers, on October 3.
The padayatra was to highlight the 'Left's atrocities' in Kerala under the LDF government.
Earlier, Rajesekharan denied allegations by the ruling CPI(M) and opposition congress that the march was to create communal divisions in the society.
He also said the yatra had received 'tremendous' support from all sections of the people.
