Thiruvananthapuram. A delegation of top Kerala BJP leaders had met Governor Arif Mohammad Khan a day earlier. It accused the Pinarayi Vijayan government of ‘maligning’ the party’s image and doing politics of vengeance. As a mark of protest over the issue, the party on Thursday organized street protests at 10,000 places across the state.
BJP leaders claim that Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan is targeting BJP leaders and their families under the guise of the ongoing investigation into the Thrissur hawala money case, by propagating false baseless reports using the media.
Incidentally, the case pertains to the disclosure of huge sums of money just before the April 6 assembly elections. In this, the name of a woman office-bearer, an ally of the BJP-led NDA, was revealed.
After which there was another revelation. BSP candidate in Manjeshwaram constituency K. Sundara said that he was given money by local BJP leaders to withdraw his candidature in favor of Surendran.
A top BJP leader said, “The protests will be organized as per the COVID protocol and all our top leaders will come online live to address the protesters at 10,000 places in the state.”
There are reports in the media that not only Surendran, but his younger son will also be questioned.
During the elections, Surendran had said that the BJP would win 35 seats and form the government in Kerala. When the votes were counted, the BJP lost its only seat which it had won in 2016.
BJP is like a divided house in Kerala. After the electoral defeat and a fall in his vote share, Surendran is working hard to maintain his position in the party.
