Yogi Adityanath, surrounded by a sea of supporters, today joined the BJP's 15-day relay walk or padyatra launched in Kerala by party chief Amit Shah. Mr Shah launched the Jan Raksha (protect people) yatra yesterday in Kannur, the home base of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, to highlight what the BJP says is the ruling CPM's "murder politics". Yogi Adityanath, the BJP's Hindutva mascot, focused on what he called "jihadi terror" and also raised "love jihad". Two more chief ministers, Devendra Fadnavis and Manohar Parrikar, are expected to take the baton as the BJP calls in the cavalry in Kerala, a state it has never won.
