BJP's narrow growth in Kerala concerns national leadership
Kollam: The BJP leadership has expressed concern over growth of the party in Kerala. The leadership observed that the party's growth is limited to Sangh Parivar organisations. Before the assembly polls, the party calculated that they will be successful in attracting popular leaders and workers of various political parties. But they failed to hit the target.
The BJP leadership examined that though the party is growing, no improvement is found in public support. Only the activists of RSS and other sub groups are working for BJP in local areas. Because of this, BJP is losing political importance in Kerala, examined the national leadership.
Participation of more people is necessary for the party’s growth, they added.
Union home minister Amit Shah also highlighted this matter while addressing an election campaign at Ernakulam.
Only four or five people who are not linked to RSS attended this meeting.
Amit Shah pointed out this fact and stated that people outside Sangh Parivar outfits are not attracted to the party.
The national leadership has taken a stance that the party should develop as a popular political party without RSS support. They added that in other states, people who do not belong to Sangh Parivar are also joining BJP.
