Former BJP MP Tarun Vijay alleged – Kerala has turned brutal under Vijayan, following Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressing concern over violence in Haryana and Punjab after controversial godman Dera Chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim conviction. Vijay said – under Vijayan kerala situation has turned brutal for differing Malayalees who are non-conformists and non-yielding, it is sin to differ from the ruling elite.
He said that Haryana is a “safe haven” for people from all states and countries and is “heralding a new era of industrial progress”, while Kerala has failed to attract “any investment and people” from other states. Vijay said that Vijayan, who showed “fake concern” on the safety of Keralaites in Haryana, must answer if he has been able to safeguard lives and dignity of citizens in Kerala, noting 14 RSS workers have been killed in 13 months, four of them Dalits.
On Friday, Vijayan had written to Modi that he was receiving calls from Malayalis from the affected areas in Haryana and Punjab who were in fear for their life and property in the face of violence unleashed by Dera Sachcha Sauda followers aftre the conviction of Dera head. “May I request you to take immediate and necessary action to ensure that the life and property of all our citizens are protected without fail,” he had said in the letter.
