Coining a controversy over the "political killings" of RSS-BJP workers in Kerala, BJP national president Amit Shah has accused state Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan of ordering the killings himself to stop the party from expanding in the state.

Addressing a Jan Raksha Yatra in the national capital, Amit Shah said that the killings were done to instil fear in the people that anyone who follows or supports the Bharatiya Janata Party will meet the same fate.

"In Kerala, when BJP people are killed no arrest is made...All the murders are being done on the orders of the Chief Minister," Shah said.

Speaking at the Connaught Place Central Park to Gole Market CPI-M central office Jan Raksha Yatra, he said, "Since the CPI-M (Communist Party of India-Marxist) government came to power in Kerala, over 120 BJP workers have been killed. They killed them brutally."

Why else "are the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers being hacked into pieces?" Shah asked.

"It is being done because they want to give the message that if anyone supports or joins the BJP they would be killed. It is being done to instil fear in the minds of the people to not support the BJP there," he said.

Assessing that that party workers are committed to their cause, he said that they are "not scared of sacrificing for the nation and the party ideology".

He said, "Remember one thing, the BJP workers won't tolerate many killings of its workers. We won't reply violence with violence as we are not communists but we will spread awareness against political killings."

Shah said, "I want to tell the Communist and Congress who supports their ideology that Communism has ended in the world and the Congress has ended in India. The BJP which started with only 10 party members, is now the world's biggest party with over 11 crore party workers."

Citing the past data about the political killings in West Bengal, Tripura and Kerala, the BJP national president said, "wherever they have remained in power they have promoted politics based on violence. BJP will face these forces in all the three states."

The party president Amit Shah was also accompanied by Delhi BJP President Manoj Tiwari, Vice President and Delhi in-charge Shyam Jaju, party's national office bearers and many other elected members.
