Kochi: Bharath Dharma Jana Sena party, which is part of NDA alliance in Kerala, has split. The new faction has declared a new political party, Bharathiya Jana Sena (BJS), under the leadership of MK Neelakandan Master. In the press conference held in Kochi announcing their alliance with UDF, the leaders pointed out that BJP is trying to bring LDF government back to power.
“We cannot continue in NDA even for a minute longer as we are unhappy with this conspiracy. BJS will function by completely trusting in the UDF. Around 12 community organisations have announced their support to us” the leaders stated.
They further added that BDJS is nothing but a tool for the BJP in the state and that they cannot remain in an organisation that has become politically irrelevant. The new party has been formed as a result of this.
