BJP MP and former Union Minister KJ Alphons has alleged that the biggest coalitions in Kerala, the Left Democratic Front and the United Democratic Front, have actively contributed to the growth of extremism in the State.
Speaking to the news agency ANI, Alphons stated that Kerala has been Talibanized. He added that certain pockets in the Pinarayi Vijayan-governed State have been thoroughly Talibanized in the last 25 years.
He then added that, 5-10 years from now, Kerala could become another Afghanistan.
It has been held by the BJP that Kerala has witnessed enormously cynical levels of appeasement politics over the decades.
