BJP unhappy about links between Vellappally and CPM
Thiruvananthapuram: Dissatisfaction and doubts have evolved in the BJP regarding the stance of BDJS in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. BJP national president Amit Shah will hold a meeting on Wednesday with BDJS state president Thushar Vellappally who took a decision not to contest the elections. The meeting aims to re-evalute Thushar's decision and turn the table in favour of BJP.
BJP is doubtful about the BDJS’s recent stances. Meeting between Vellappally Natesan and chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan and four ministers has turned these doubts of BJP into dissatisfaction.
There were indications that Amit Shah will interfere to change the mind of Thushar. According to the present decision by the BJP, if Thushar doesn’t contest, BDJS won’t be given more than four seats in the election as decided before.
Earlier, Vellappally Natesan had said that Thushar shouldn’t contest in the elections. The stance taken by Thushar in favour of his father’s decision had put the BJP in a chaos situation. However, the BJP is now discerning whether the SNDP has been wholly fallen into hands of state government and CPM. BDJS had stood with the government and CPM in the Sabarimala women entry issue.
