The three-day BJP State leadership meet, which got underway at a private resort here on Tuesday, has decided to concentrate on select constituencies for the forthcoming Lok Sabha poll. The party leadership has also decided to concentrate on creating new alliances in the State to develop the NDA.

BJP national secretary Balbir K Punj, who is in charge of the State, is present at the meeting along with the party joint organising secretary V Sathish.

BJP State president PK Krishnadas told mediapersons that the farm trade union of the CPI(M) has turned into a goonda gang and is collecting hafta from the farmers for using mechanised farming.

The BJP leaders also came out heavily against the CPI(M) and the State Home Ministry on the political killings in Thalassery and other parts of Kannur.

The party meet decided to raise the issue in all parts of the country and to expose the deeds of the CPI(M) in Kerala under the security of the power and the Government.

Interestingly, there were not much dissent voices in the party State meet as the delegates were united in their attack against the CPI(M) and the mature response of the party leadership in raising the issue at the national level. The active involvement of the national leadership of the party and specifically the role played by the party national leader M Venkaiah Naidu in raising the issue properly in Parliament was lauded by the party leaders present.

The brutal attack on the RSS Thalassery Taluk leader MP Sumesh who lost his left palm in the attack was also mentioned in the party’s three-day conclave.

The BJP leadership called upon the State Government to provide relief to the people of the State and to protect them from the high rise of prices in the State for essential commodities especially, rice.

There were also scathing attacks against the CPI leaders and the Food and Civil Supplies Minister C Divakaran in failing to contain the rising prices of essential commodities. The party also expressed concern over the failure of the Government at the national level to contain this issue which could lead to poverty and hunger deaths in the country.

It may be recalled that while the NDA was moving out of power, the prices of essential commodities were controlled and there was a good stock of grains and other essential commodities. There was a general relief among the officials of the Agriculture Ministry that there was nothing to fear with regards to the food stock but unfortunately for the country, the situation is giving panic to those who think about this issue.
