Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan will take part in BJP's ongoing Jan Raksha Yatra in Kerala on October 10, a party spokesman said today. The yatra, which is currently underway, has been taken out by the BJP to highlight political murders and boost morale of workers in Kerala ahead of the 2019 general election. Chouhan will join the yatra at Palakkad and travel upto Mannuthy in a vehicle where he will address a public meeting in Wadakkanchery, BJP spokesman, Rajnish Agrawal said. The chief minister will embark on padyatra from Mannuthy to Thrissur on the same day and address a public meeting there. Chouhan will return to Bhopal late in the night, he added. The BJP had on October 3 launched a 15-day march in Kerala to target the state's Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI(M)) government accusing the Left party of being on a "killing spree" against its workers. The march, which is part on foot and part in vehicles, is being seen as the saffron partys push to emerge as a potent force in the state ahead of the Lok Sabha poll in 2019.
