THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Kerala will unitedly oppose the BJP’s move to turn the state into Gujarat, said CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan. BJP president Amit Shah failed to inject communal poison in Kerala, Kodiyeri said in a Facebook post. 

“Amit Shah has returned without being able to inject the expected level of communal poison. The BJP and Shah are attempting to shatter our secular values and turn Kerala into Gujarat. The state will oppose this communal propaganda,” Kodiyeri said. 

He said the BJP and RSS are trying to defame Kerala at the national-level and project a negative picture about the state. The RSS has been initiating various measures to create communal tension in the state. Shah meeting religious leaders was part of the RSS-BJP tactics. They should be cautious about BJP leaders coming to touch their feet, he said.
