THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: BJP president Amit Shah lashed out at the CPM at the foundation stone laying ceremony of the new BJP headquarters at Mararji Bhavan here Sunday, saying each time when it comes to power, it is the BJP and RSS workers who are getting killed. He said it was not only the foundation stone of the party headquarters but for an NDA government in Kerala. BJP's former organising general secretary P. P. Mukundan was not invited. Mr Shah said BJP, which started off with 10 MPs as the Jan Sangh, has now evolved into a party of 11 crore members, but the CPM was not allowing it to function in Kerala.
"Our activists are mostly killed in Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan's home district and his constituency. This year alone 13 BJP/RSS activists have been killed. If the Chief Minister believes that he can suppress us through violence, then it is their folly. Those who attack the BJP will be punished by law," he said. The new headquarters of 50, 000 sq ft is coming up on a 55-cent property once owned by Congress leader S. Krishnakumar. In 1999, a trust headed by the then BJP president C. K. Padmanabhan bought the land at the initiative of P.P. Mukundan.
