Thiruvanthapuram, May 2: The Kerala BJP on Monday expressed concern at the manner in which former defence minister A.K. Antony was going hammer and tongs against them in his state assembly election campaign. The Bharatiya Jata Party (BJP) has threatened to approach the Election Commission to rein in Antony. Since Saturday Antony is asking the people in Kerala at every election campaign to ensure there is BJP-mukta (BJP-free) assembly once the results come out on May 19, after the voting takes place in the state on May 16. On Monday also, Antony attacked the BJP and told reporters in north Kerala that if the BJP was given space, literally what Vivekanda said about Kerala would become true. Kerala BJP president Kummanem Rajasekheran told reporters here on Monday that Antony’s remarks about the BJP were unwarranted. “We will approach the Election Commission against his remarks that peace will disappear should the BJP win seats in the Kerala assembly. Statements like these are meant to raise commul passion and this is improper,” he said. (IANS)
