BJP has escalated its high-decibel national campaign against the killing of RSS-BJP workers in Kerala by taking out padyatras through Kannur, the hotbed of CPM-RSS political violence.

He said it "amused" him that the UP chief minister found time for Kerala despite "problems" in his own land.

News18, quoting sources, said that that Modi, Shah and Jaitley had discussed the state of the economy at the meeting, and that a major announcement can be expected before Diwali.

On Tuesday, Shah while flagging of the "Jana Raksha Yatra" being undertaken by Kerala BJP President Kummanem Rajasekheran at Payanur in Kannur district, had singled out Vijayan for the violence unleashed on BJP and RSS cadres in the state, especially in his home town Kannur.

BJP has set off on a 15-day foot march under the leadership of its chief Amit Shah to protest the CPI-M's alleged violence against its party workers.

"CPI (M) leader and Kerala chief minister Vijayan is directly responsible for all political murders in Kerala", he alleged. The BJP has projected the yatra as a call against "jihadi and Left terror".

Vijayan also asked Yogi to refrain from speaking on the basis of "false and fake" information provided by the state BJP leaders.

While Amit Shah cut short his tour of Kerala, Jaitley returned from Dhaka for the meeting with Modi, who on Wednesday night put up a strong defence of the government's handling of the economy and hit back at critics saying they were spreading pessimism all round.

"I will not jeopardise the future of the country for my present gains", he said, adding the government would focus on structural reforms rather than giving doles to win praises.

Adityanath also raked up the issue of "love jihad" and said that it was a "dangerous trend" being inadequately dealt with by the CPM government.

He said the BJP will not allow Kerala to become a land of "lal salaam", a term used by Communists for greeting each other. "The Supreme Court has already passed an order on it and the NIA is investigating it", Yogi added.
