Earlier in the day, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath who is on a Kerala visit, stated that violence under Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan is increasing and an environment of Jihadi terrorism is prospering in the state.
Karat responded to this charge by saying that "what baton is Yogi Adityanath to take? Their relay race is a race of violence, of terror, of intimidation, and of bulling because these are all encounter specialists".
She added that the UP CM should learn from the hospitals and health system in Kerala, in order to help the poor children of his own place, Gorakhpur.
"In this so called Yatra of Amit Shah, he thinks a lie told a thousand times will become the truth, but that is not going to be happen," Karat weighed in on the Janaraksha Yatra launched by BJP president Amit Shah.
"People of Kerala know that RSS is not a victim. It is the RSS and its goons who are responsible for disturbing communal harmony in Kerala, but the people have not allowed them to succeed," Karat added.
